Gesture Recognition Using Neural Networks

Kinect + Neural Network = Gesture Recognition
Sony Playstation Move SDK test

Cool use of the FANN library

The creators write:

gesture recognition using a kinect an a neural network.
We using the openNI and the NITE librairies with a Kinect to track body parts (hands, elbow, head, …). Then we use FANN (Fast Artificial Neural Network) library for the recognition system.
For now, It is able to recognize only two moves, one means ‘hello’ (“bonjour” in franch), the other mean ‘sorry’ (“désole” in french).
We just need to record new moves to train the neural network to be able to recognize other “words”/moves.
