We have already seen artificial intelligence software that can make critical decisions and direct drones to prevent poaching. At Carnegie Mellon University (CMU), robotics researchers have now developed a method that enables a computer to understand the body poses and movements of multiple people at the same time, including the positions of individual fingers. Yaser Sheikh, associate professor of robotics, has pointed out that this technique allows computers to track the nuances of human non-verbal communication and could open up new ways for people and machines to interact with each other. Tracking multiple people in real time, particularly in social…
