Provide a short and concise description of the social problem your project is addressing/solving:

We are solving a problem of enabling physically disabled people to get an easy and convenient way to control their electronic devices. This technology also makes contact-less interaction of people and electronic devices in public areas more available and possible. This could help the humanity to stop the spread of the COVID19, by reducing the amount of physical interaction among users and devices.

Provide a short and concise description of how you integrated AI into your project (Please make this description short. You will be able to explain further in the video):

We wrote our program in python language, using OpenCV, and OpenVino pre-trained models for face detection, head pose estimation, facial landmarks detection and gaze estimation.
