REAL-TIME ADAPTIVE HAND MOTION RECOGNITION USING A SPARSE BAYESIAN CLASSIFIER
Shu-Fai Wong and Roberto Cipolla
An approach to increase adaptability of a recognition system, which can recognise 10 elementary gestures and be extended to sign language recognition, is proposed. In this work, recognition is done by firstly extracting a motion gradient orientation image from a raw video input and then classifying a feature vector generated from this image to one of the 10 gestures by a sparse Bayesian classifier. The classifier is designed in a way that it supports online incremental learning and it can be thus re-trained to increase its adaptability to an input captured under a new condition. Experiments show that the accuracy of the classifier can be boosted from less than 40\% to over 80\% by re-training it using 5 newly captured samples from each gesture class. Apart from having a better adaptability, the system can work reliably in real-time and give a probabilistic output that is useful in complex motion analysis.
