On February 1st took place the kick-off meeting virtually, of the European Project EASIER – intElligent Automatic SIgn languagE tRanslation with the aim of intelligent automatic sign language translation.
The EASIER project will create a tool to improve Deaf / hearing communication by developing technology to automatically translate sign languages into spoken or written language and vice versa. It will not be limited to a single spoken/signed language pair, but will be able to translate among multiple signed and spoken languages within the EU domain. The design of the app will be user-driven, while exhaustive evaluation procedures will be carried out by different stakeholders.
