Alessandro Valli's Summary

Building the future of computing.

I like computers when they don't look like computers.

I spent the last 12 years inventing and refining interactive spaces and artifacts in research centers and startups. I am very effective in rapid prototyping, simplification, making things work smoothly and reliably. I possess a strong aesthetic sense for clean interaction concepts.


Specialties:

- human-computer interaction design
- OpenGL, advanced data visualization
- real-time computer vision (color, near infrared, depth sensors)
- software engineering, C++, iOS programming

    • United States Patent Application 11/391,724
    • Filed March 28, 2006
    Inventors: Alessandro Valli
  • Spatial Operating Environment (soe) with Markerless Gestural Control

    • United States Patent Application US 13/909,980
    • Filed June 4, 2013

    A Spatial Operating Environment (SOE) with markerless gestural control includes a sensor coupled to a processor that runs numerous applications. A gestural interface application executes on the processor. The gestural interface application receives data from the sensor that corresponds to a hand of a user detected by the sensor, and tracks the hand by generating images from the data and associating blobs in the images with tracks of the hand. The gestural interface application detects a pose of the hand by classifying each blob as corresponding to an object shape. The gestural interface application generates a gesture signal in response to a gesture comprising the pose and the tracks, and controls the applications with the gesture signal.
