Interview with Dr Giacomo Inches
about the ‘Easier’ research project

A fully-automated translation and communication tool is being developed in the ‘Easier’ research project to enable deaf and hearing individuals to communicate and interact using sign language. We interviewed project manager Dr Giacomo Inches in a video on the technical setup.

The ‘Easier’ project is developing a 3D-avatar for sign language. What is the biggest technical challenge with this? How are the differences in regional sign languages being taken into consideration? From a technical point of view, how does the automated recognition work for speech and sign language? Discover the technical insights in the video interview.
