Computer Vision Architecture using Fusion Technique

Nidhi Srivastava, Harsh Dev
2013 International Journal of Computer Applications  
In this we have used two modalities-audio and video. The audio part extracts the speech of a person and the video part extracts the face and lip information of the person.  ...  Humans want to communicate with the computers in the same way as they communicate with other humans. Speech is the most natural and spontaneous form of communication.  ...  The importance of vision is seen not only in interaction with humans only but also in interaction with machines. A machine that can see people is able to interact with humans in an informed manner.  ...

Facing the music

Michael J. Lyons, Nobuji Tetsutani
2001 CHI '01 extended abstracts on Human factors in computing systems - CHI '01  
We describe a novel musical controller which acquires live video input from the user's face, extracts facial feature parameters using a computer vision algorithm, and converts these to expressive musical  ...  The controller allows the user to modify synthesized or audio-filtered musical sound in real time by moving the face.  ...  The use of facial musculature in speech and emotional expression makes musical control a natural application for this interface, however it might also be used as a general machine interface by people with  ...

Toward a Taxonomy of Copresence

Shanyang Zhao
2003 Presence - Teleoperators and Virtual Environments  
This type of fully embodied communication requires a "face-to-face" interface that engages all human sensory channels. Only corporeal copresence supports this interface.  ...  The face-to-face interface in corporeal copresence allows only a small number of people to communicate with one another.  ...
