Student uses AI to translate sign language to English in real-time | ZME Science
For many people, online calls have become a big part of their day-to-day work routine. Software companies have also kept up the pace, adding more useful features to these platforms, like highlighting the person who is speaking. But when a person is using sign language, the software doesn’t give them any special recognition. Furthermore, these platforms can act as a barrier against those reliant on sign language; one engineer seeks to change that.
To bridge that gap, Priyanjali Gupta, an engineering student from Tamil Nadu’s Vellore Institute of Technology (VIT), created an AI model that translates American sign language (ASL) into English in real-time. She shared her creation on LinkedIn, reaching over 60,000 likes on the platform as people seem impressed with the creative idea.
