Abstract

In this project, we propose to use the (hand-free) Kinect camera to recognize any predefined hand gesture so as to control the presentation sequences of slides or videos streaming from the cloud server. Besides providing the storage for presentation, the cloud server of the smart presentation system (SPS) was supported by a number of "Intelligent" algorithms to dynamically learn about any new gesture. A prototype of our SPS was built on the Microsoft .NET platform with a detailed evaluation to be conducted to analyze the effectiveness of our SPS. After all, there are many interesting directions for further investigations.
