Student Spotlight: Improving Gesture Control with Touch

Counted amongst the first cohort in the PhD program in the Digital Media Department, Chelsea is at the forefront of web development. She is researching how to mitigate the drawbacks of gesture control in order to improve its ability to read intent by combining gesture and touch. Further development of gesture control is currently hindered by two major drawbacks: live mic and false-negative errors. These two issues impact a gesture system’s ability to properly read the user’s intent and decrease its accuracy and execution speed.
