Neural Learning Methods for Human-Computer Interaction

  title={Neural Learning Methods for Human-Computer Interaction},
  author={Thomas Kopinski},
This thesis aims at improving the complex task of hand gesture recognition by utilizing machine learning techniques to learn from features calculated from 3D point cloud data. The main contributions of this work are embedded in the domains of machine learning and in the human-machine interaction. Since the goal is to demonstrate that a robust real-time capable system can be set up which provides a supportive means of interaction, the methods researched have to be light-weight in the sense that…
