In this paper, we propose a novel algorithm to model and recognize sign language with Kinect sensor. We assume that in a sign language video, some frames are expected to be both discriminative and representative. Under this assumption, each frame in training videos is assigned a binary latent variable indicating its discriminative capability. A Latent Support Vector Machine model is then developed to classify the signs, as well as localize the discriminative and representative frames in videos… CONTINUE READING
