Kinect to be improved

Written by David Stellmack

Reduced lag and improved accuracy
Microsoft Research has apparently come up with new “AI learning routines” that are likely to be incorporated into the Kinect software going forward. The new AI learning routines have the ability to track different body parts which improve accuracy and reduce lag.

Researchers have published a paper detailing their findings; and while Microsoft has not yet committed to incorporating this research into a future software release for Kinect, our sources tell us that they will. Increasing the accuracy of Kinect while at the same time reducing lag will be something Microsoft can’t afford to pass up. It will take some time to get it done, but we expect that Microsoft is already hard at work figuring out how to incorporate this research into a future release.

If you are up to it, you can reach the full research paper here.
