Very interesting, thanks for the info and the links! Looking forward to reading through it. I haven’t worked on this in a while, but am still interested in learning and improving on what I was doing.
Like you, I was able to get quite good results using IMU data with wekinator, less so with the EMG data. With the EMG data I was basically able to recreate the recognized gestures that the Myo ships with, but not much more. I’m also not an ML expert, so was basically just experimenting to see what worked best.
Ultimately, I think I just had too high of expectations for the EMG capabilities of the Myo. I was really hoping to be able to train on much smaller hand and finger movements, but I’m not sure it’s possible with the available data. Maybe with the right filtering and training, it could work… I’m also not a DSP expert. But I haven’t given up yet, and am encouraged to find others using ML with the Myo as well!
