WiiGesture is a gesture recognition program for actions that use accelerometer data. It uses artificial intelligence to classify gestures using a wiimote from a few examples of each gesture. This was a project for a Machine Learning class. Many algorithms were tried, like LCSS, Bagged Trees, SVMs, and Fast Fourier Transforms and the video highlights the one we found most useful (Cross Correlation). This was a really fun project that has real world applications in the video game industry, and I hope it encourages students to consider studying Artificial Intelligence.
