Feature modeling using polynomial classifiers and stepwise regression
In polynomial networks, feature vectors are mapped to a higher dimensional space through a polynomial function. The expanded vectors are then passed to a single layer network to compute the model parameters. However, as ...
Multiple Proposals for Continuous Arabic Sign Language Recognition
The deaf community relies on sign language as the primary means of communication. For the millions of people around the world who suffer from hearing loss, interaction with hearing people is quite difficult. The main ...
Robust Polynomial Classifier Using L1-norm minimization
In this paper we present a robust polynomial classifier based on L1-norm minimization. We do so by reformulating the classifier training process as a linear programming problem. Due to the inherent insensitivity of the ...
User-independent recognition of Arabic sign language for facilitating communication with the deaf community
This paper presents a solution for user-independent recognition of isolated Arabic Sign language gestures. The video based gestures are preprocessed to segment out the hands of the signer based on color segmentation of the ...
