This paper presents the implementation of a Region-based Convolutional Neural Network focused on the recognition and localization of hand gestures, in this case 2 types of gestures: open and closed hand, in order to achieve the recognition of such gestures in dynamic backgrounds. The neural network is trained and validated, achieving a 99.4% validation accuracy in gesture recognition and a 25% average accuracy in RoI localization, which is then tested in real time, where its operation is
more » ... operation is verified through times taken for recognition, execution behavior through trained and untrained gestures, and complex backgrounds.
