Abstract
A system for recovering 3D hand pose from monocu-
lar color sequences is proposed. The system employs a
non-linear supervised learning framework, the specialized
mappings architecture (SMA), to map image features to
likely 3D hand poses. The SMA's fundamental components
are a set of specialized forward mapping functions, and a
single feedback matching function. The forward functions
are estimated directly from training data, which in our case
are examples of hand joint configurations and their corre-
sponding visual features. The joint angle data in the train-
ing set is obtained via a CyberGlove, a glove with 22 sen-
sors that monitor the angular motions of the palm and fin-
