Method and System for Validating Workflow Execution Steps by Analyzing and Comparing Hand Gestures using Wearable Devices

Wearable devices with different sensors can measure various types muscle movements of users. Wearable devices can also identify user gestures that are being performed during a phone call, an email discussion, or a different workflow indicating approval/disapproval of sequence of steps in the workflow. It is advantageous to use signals from the wearable devices as another level of validation in the workflow in combination with use of contextual analysis of spoken word or text.

Disclosed is a method and system for validating workflow execution steps by analyzing and comparing hand gestures using wearable devices. The method and system contextually analyzes user's content (spoken word or written text) in relation to the business workflow, using natural language process (NLP). The analyzed content is then compared with corresponding hand gestures that are monitored using wearable such devices such as, for example, a smart watch. Thereafter, one or more steps of the business workflow is either accepted or removed based on the analysis and comparison of the content with corresponding hand gestures.

In accordance with the method and system, as illustrated in figure, the user's text and voice commands with respect to a business process (workflow) are received and contextually analyzed using NLP. Subsequently, user's hand gestures (thumbs up and thumbs down) acknowledging each step of the workflow are monitored using wearable devices and are compared with the...
