This paper proposes a novel method with a modified Expectation-Maximisation (EM) Algorithm to segment hand gestures in the RGB-D data captured by Kinect. With the depth map and RGB image aligned by the genetic algorithm to estimate the key points from both depth and RGB images, a novel approach is proposed to refine the edge of the tracked hand gesture, which is used to segment the RGB image of the hand gestures, by applying a modified EM algorithm based on Bayesian networks. The experimental results demonstrated the modified EM algorithm effectively adjusts the RGB edges of the segmented hand gestures. The proposed methods have potential to improve the performance of hand gesture recognition in Human-Computer Interaction (HCI).
