Scientists are developing new technologies that will allow computers to recognise non-verbal commands such as gestures, body language and facial expressions. For most people, using a computer is limited to clicking, typing, searching, and, thanks to Siri and similar software, verbal commands.

Washington: Scientists are developing new technologies that will allow computers to recognise non-verbal commands such as gestures, body language and facial expressions. For most people, using a computer is limited to clicking, typing, searching, and, thanks to Siri and similar software, verbal commands.

The team has proposed creating a library of what are called Elementary Composable Ideas (ECIs). Like little packets of information recognisable to computers, each ECI contains information about a gesture or facial expression, derived from human users, as well as a syntactical element that constrains how the information can be read.

The researchers try to communicate with and record the person's natural gestures for concepts like "stop," or, "huh?" Their goal: making computers smart enough to reliably recognise non-verbal cues from humans in the most natural, intuitive way possible.
