Hand gestures have been widely applied to interface as the way of interaction between human and computers. Since a human hand can express various shapes of gestures, previous models for recognizing them cannot distinguish them accurately since they use only single model for recognition. For efficient hand gesture recognition with its enhanced performance, we propose the fuzzy c-means clustering based mixture-of-experts (FME). The proposed method uses multiple local experts obtained via fuzzy c-means clustering and decisions from them are combined with the gating network. To evaluate the performance of the proposed method, we conduct experiments including comparisons with alternative models for hand gesture recognition. As the result of experiments, the proposed model shows improved gesture recognition performance, especially performance on similar hand gesture recognition.
