October 2013 Embedded Vision Summit Technical Presentation: “Vision-Based Gesture User Interfaces,” Francis MacDougall, Qualcomm

Francis MacDougall, Senior Director of Technology at Qualcomm, presents the "Vision-Based Gesture User Interfaces" tutorial within the "Vision Applications" technical session at the October 2013 Embedded Vision Summit East. MacDougall explains how gestures fit into the spectrum of advanced user interface options, compares and contrasts the various 2-D and 3-D technologies (vision and other) available to implement gesture interfaces, gives examples of the various gestures (and means of discerning them) currently in use by systems manufacturers, and forecasts how the gesture interface market may evolve in the future.

Please note that the audio was intentionally muted between ~4:45 and ~5:45, to address soundtrack copyright concerns.
