GestuRe: An Interactive Machine Learning System for Recognizing Hand Gestures

(This post describes a project I completed for MAS.S62 Interactive Machine Learning at the MIT Media Lab. The assignment was to create a simple interactive machine learning system that gave the user visibility into the learning algorithm.)GestuRe is a mixed-initiative interactive machine learning system for recognizing hand gestures. It attempts to give the user visibility into the classifier’s prediction confidence and control of the conditions under which the system actively requests labeled gestures when its predictions are uncertain.Training object or gesture recognition systems is often a tedious and uncertain process.
