A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11869039B1) discloses a computer-readable medium containing instructions for training a machine learning model to recognize gestures based on digital video images of body movements. The technology involves identifying user engagement levels with displayed content by analyzing hand gestures and determining the length of time a gesture is detected. This information is then used to select and transmit targeted content to the user, potentially including audio or video programs, advertisements, or other content types. The system also incorporates facial recognition to personalize user experiences and store gesture information in relation to identified users, allowing for sentiment analysis and user profile customization based on hand gestures.

Furthermore, the patent describes additional features such as detecting multiple gestures over time, determining sentiment associated with gestures, selecting content based on pricing considerations, user engagement levels, and relationships between users within a physical environment. The technology utilizes sensors to capture ultrasonic signals and infrared light spectrum signals to enhance gesture recognition accuracy. Overall, the system aims to provide a personalized and engaging content presentation experience by analyzing user gestures and emotions to tailor content selection and delivery on content presentation systems.
