We present a new approach to analyse these inflections by modelling the systematic variations as parallel channels of information with independent feature sets. A Bayesian network framework is used to combine the channel outputs and infer both the basic lexical meaning and inflection categories. Experiments using a simulated vocabulary of six basic signs and five different inflections (a total of 20 distinct gestures) obtained from multiple test subjects yielded 85.0% recognition accuracy. We also propose an adaptation scheme to extend a trained system to recognize gestures from a new person by using only a small set of data from the new person. This scheme yielded 88.5% recognition accuracy for the new person while the unadapted system yielded only 52.6% accuracy. © 2006 Pattern Recognition Society.||Source Title:||Pattern Recognition||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/57748||ISSN:||00313203||DOI:||10.1016/j.patcog.2006.02.010|
