  abstract =     "Automatic gesture recognition has received much
                 attention due to its potential in various applications.
                 In this paper, we successfully apply an evolutionary
                 method-genetic programming (GP) to synthesise machine
                 learnt spatio-temporal descriptors for automatic
                 gesture recognition instead of using hand-crafted
                 descriptors. In our architecture, a set of primitive
                 low-level 3D operators are first randomly assembled as
                 tree-based combinations, which are further evolved
                 generation-by-generation through the GP system, and
                 finally a well performed combination will be selected
                 as the best descriptor for high-level gesture
                 recognition. To the best of our knowledge, this is the
                 first report of using GP to evolve spatio-temporal
                 descriptors for gesture recognition. We address this as
                 a domain-independent optimisation issue and evaluate
                 our proposed method, respectively, on two public
                 dynamic gesture datasets: Cambridge hand gesture
                 dataset and Northwestern University hand gesture
                 dataset to demonstrate its generalizability. The
                 experimental results manifest that our GP-evolved
                 descriptors can achieve better recognition accuracies
                 than state-of-the-art hand-crafted techniques.",
