In my last post I discussed some work on the $-family of recognizers. Since then, I’ve been working on designing a standalone application for running gesture recognition experiments using the $-family. The application will also allow the user to design custom recognizers. I’ll also be using the $-family to run recognition experiments on the data we have collected in our MTAGIC project. By analyzing the results, we hope to be able to design better recognition algorithms for kids.
Working with the $-family has given me a great introduction to the field of gesture recognition. I have studied these algorithms as well as other work in the field, which will be important knowledge as I continue forward and begin writing my own gesture recognizers.
