Tools for Machine Learning and Sensor Inputs for Gesture Recognition

The past several years have seen an explosion in machine learning, including in creative contexts - everything from hallucinating puppyslugs, to generating new melodies, machine learning is already beginning to revolutionize the way artists and musicians execute their craft.

My personal interest in the area of machine learning relates to using it to recognize human gestural input via sensors. This interest was sparked from working with Project Soli as a member of the Alpha Developer program.

Sensors offer a bridge between the physical world and the digital. Rich sensor input combined with machine learning allows for new interfaces to be developed that are novel, expressive, and can be configured to a specialized creative task.
