Skin segmentation is the cornerstone of many applications such as gesture recognition, face detection, and objectionable image filtering. In this paper, we attempt to address the skin segmentation problem for gesture recognition. Initially, given a gesture video sequence, a generic skin model is applied to the first couple of frames to automatically collect the training data. Then, an SVM classifier based on active learning is used to identify the skin pixels. Finally, the results are improved… CONTINUE READING
