Gesture recognition refers to a topic in language and computer science technology with the aim to make sense of human gestures through mathematical algorithms. Any bodily state or motion, mostly from hand or face, could be the gestures that are interpreted through mathematical algorithms. The global gesture recognition market is predicted to rise with the growing popularity and adoption of this technology amongst various end user segments.
This cutting-edge technology is an alternative user interface for offering real-time data to a computer system. In this technology, instead of keying in data or just tapping on a touch screen, the motion sensor is capable of reading and interpreting hand or face gesture or state. This bodily gesture or state acts as the main source of data in such a technology.
