Are You Watching Closely? Content-based Retrieval of Hand Gestures

Mahnaz Amiri Parian, Luca Rossetto, Heiko Schuldt, Stéphane Dupont
2020 Proceedings of the 2020 International Conference on Multimedia Retrieval  
Our experiments show the ability of I3DEF to recognize and retrieve gestures which are similar to the queries independently of the depth modality.  ...  In this paper, we explore the problem of identifying and retrieving gestures in a large-scale video dataset provided by the computer vision community and based on queries recorded in-the-wild.  ...  In this paper, we therefore present a content-based retrieval approach for videos of hand gestures.  ...

Attention to behavioral events during interaction: Two actor-observer gaps and three attempts to close them

Bertram F. Malle, Gale E. Pearce
2001 Journal of Personality and Social Psychology  
Implications of these results for the role of attention in attribution and interpersonal behavior are discussed.  ...  Studies 2 and 3 explore factors that might close the gaps, such as relational intimacy and empathy.  ...  Of course, the content of such reports is not solely based on on-line attentional processes. Retrieval cues, response biases, and on-the-spot inference processes may also have an impact.  ...

"It's Natural to Grab and Pull": Retrieving Content from Large Displays Using Mid-Air Gestures

Ville Makela, Jobin James, Tuuli Keskinen, Jaakko Hakulinen, Markku Turunen
2017 IEEE pervasive computing  
Our results show that i) mid-air gestures are well suited for content retrieval scenarios and offer an impressive user experience, ii) grab-and-pull is preferred for scenarios where content is transferred  ...  To fully utilize the ubiquitous nature of mid-air gestures for this purpose, we developed SimSense, a smart space system which automatically pairs users with their mobile devices based on location data  ...  Content Retrieval Based on the findings of our previous work as well as existing gesture design guidelines, we designed two content retrieval gestures, grab-and-pull and grab-and-drop.  ...

Bridging Screen Readers and Voice Assistants for Enhanced Eyes-Free Web Search

Alexandra Vtyurina, Adam Fourney, Meredith Ringel Morris, Leah Findlater, Ryen W. White
2019 The World Wide Web Conference on - WWW '19  
We learned that virtual assistants are convenient and accessible, but lack the ability to deeply engage with content (e.g., read beyond the frst few sentences of an article), and the ability to get a quick  ...  Increasingly, these individuals also make extensive use of voice-based virtual assistants (VAs).  ...  While we hypothesized that watch-based interaction would be an asset (given that watches are always on hand), their appeal is diminished by the limitations of current form factors and hardware.  ...

What can iconic gestures tell us about the language system? A case of conduction aphasia

Naomi Cocks, Lucy Dipper, Ruth Middleton, Gary Morgan
2010 International journal of language and communication disorders  
Very little is known about the semantic content of gestures produced by people with aphasia.  ...  Abstract Background: Speech and language therapists rarely analyse iconic gesture when assessing a client with aphasia, despite a growing body of research suggesting that language and gesture are part  ...  They would also like to thank Jane Marshall and Nicola Botting for their helpful comments on earlier drafts of this paper.  ...

Facilitating Understanding of Movements in Dynamic Visualizations: an Embodied Perspective

Björn B. de Koning, Huib K. Tabbers
2011 Educational Psychology Review  
Based on embodied theories of cognition assuming that action, perception, and cognition are closely intertwined, this paper proposes that the learning effectiveness of dynamic visualizations could be enhanced  ...  Implications for the design of dynamic visualizations as well as directions for future research are presented.  ...  Children watching a videotaped lesson of a teacher that gestured during his or her explanation had a better understanding of the concepts that were taught than children watching a teacher not making gestures  ...

Co-speech Gesture in Anomic Aphasia

Antje Orgassa
2005 Toegepaste taalwetenschap in artikelen  
The use of gestures during "normal" speech production is well investigated and understood.  ...  Consequently, it is questionable whether word retrieval during anomia can be prompted by nonverbal stimulation.  ...  -Gestures are idiosyncratic in nature. -Gestures are realized with one or two hands. -Gestures are functional, semantically and temporally in close relationship to speech; they can be synchronous.  ...
