New tool for virtual and augmented reality uses ‘deep learning’

This series of photos shows the use of a new system, called DeepHand, developed by researchers in Purdue University’s C Design Lab. It is capable of “deep learning” to understand the hand’s nearly endless complexity of joint angles and contortions, an advance that will be needed for future systems that allow people to interact with virtual environments in virtual and augmented reality. (Purdue University image/C Design Lab) Download image WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. – Future systems that allow people to interact with virtual environments will require computers to interpret the human hand’s nearly endless variety and complexity of changing motions and joint angles. In virtual and augmented reality, the user wears a headset that displays the virtual environment as video and images. Whereas augmented reality allows the user to see the…
