Meeting Date: 03.05.1999
What I did last week: I wrote several programs that enable the system to learn. One is called evaluate and another one validate. The first one takes input from the user and compiles gesture *.dat files from them. It eliminates outliers, calculates the average value, std. deviation and max. and min. values. judging from the std. dev. it makes a judgement about how well the gesture will be recognized. Then there is the second program. Its task is a bit more difficult. It has to ensure that the gestures are compatible with each other (not all gestures are. For a discussion follow this link). I also wrote a program that compiles a whole training-set and does the evaluation and validation automatically.
What I'll do this week: Have some people compile training sets of gestures and then recognize them and see if the recognition rate improves.
