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

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…..
