In this paper, we address the problem of the recognition of isolated complex mono- and bi-manual hand gestures. In the proposed system, hand gestures are represented by the 3D trajectories of blobs. Blobs are obtained by tracking colored body parts in real-time using the EM algorithm. In most of the studies on hand gestures, only small vocabularies have been used. In this paper, we study the results obtained on a more complex database of mono- and bi-manual gestures. These results are obtain processing algorithm, namely Input/Output Hidden Markov Model (IOHMM), implemented within the framework of an open source machine learning library.

Hello cousine

j'ai regardé le vidéo... ça faisait longtemps que je ne t'avais pas vue... ça fait plaisir ! Même si je n'ai pas compris ce que tu as présenté car ce n'est pas mon domaine de compétences, je suis fier de toi et surtout tu es parfaitement bilingue !!!
A bientot j'espère

Ca a l'air sympa ce que tu fais, tu en as fait du chemin depuis le collège et le lycée, j'espère que tout se passe bien pour toi.
