ICT Research Scientist Louis-Philippe Morency received the best paper award at the 8th International Conference on Automatic Face and Gesture Recognition. The research, co-authored by UCSD’s Jacob Whitehill and Javier Movellan, advances the field of human-computer interaction by presenting a model for estimating head position and orientation in real-time.  Possible applications include novel computer input devices, head gesture recognition, driver fatigue recognition systems, attention awareness for intelligent tutoring systems and social interaction analysis.
