With new technologies, such as mobile communications, internet of things, and wide applications of social media, organizations generate a huge volume of data, much faster than several years ago. Big data, characterized by high volume, diversity and velocity, increasingly drives decision making and is changing the landscape of business intelligence, from governments to private organizations, from communities to individuals. Big data analytics that discover insights from evidences has a high demand for computing efficiency, knowledge discovery, problem solving, and event prediction. We dedicate a special section of Issue 4/2017 to Big Data. Prospective authors are asked to make the submissions for this section no later than the 31st of May 2017, placing "BigData - " before the paper title in OpenConf.

This paper presents an automatic 3D dynamic hand gesture recognition algorithm relying on both intensity and depth information provided by a Kinect camera. Gesture classification consists of a decision tree constructed on six parameters delivered by the Hough transform of projected 3D points. The Hough transform is originally applied, for the first time, on the projected gesture trajectories to obtain a reliable decision. The experimental data obtained from 300 video sequences with different subjects validate the proposed recognition method.
