Gesture Recognition: A Disruptive Technology?
Erik DeVito, CSEP-Acq; Sr Systems Engineering Manager – Serco North America
Presentation: Gesture Recognition is quickly becoming a mainstream technology for achieving dynamic human system interfaces that do not require traditional input mechanisms. A review of current consumer level devices and software will be conducted. Due to the significant increase in availability, Gesture Recognition has the potential to become a disruptive technology which will likely have a profound effect on how we interact with system environments. Both live and video demonstrations will be presented. The implications for Systems Engineering will be reviewed and recommendations will be explored.
Location: Applied Physics Laboratory, Johns Hopkins University;
11100 Johns Hopkins Rd Laurel MD 20723 (Main Entrance – Lobby 1)
Meal: Braised Beef Stew with carrots, potatoes and celery in a rich burgundy wine brown sauce over a savory biscuit. Vegetable du jour, Garden Salad, rolls and butter, dessert, including a small Fruit Plate, coffee, iced tea.
