Our ultimate objectives are to improve daily face-to-face communication and facilitate the fair, unbiased and inclusive spread of information and digital content in European society.
SignON will develop a free, open-source service and framework for conversion between video, audio and text, translating between sign and spoken languages, delivered to the users via an easy-to-use mobile application.
We target Irish Sign Language (ISL), British Sign Language (BSL), Sign Language of the Netherlands (NGT), Flemish Sign Language (VGT) and Spanish Sign Language (LSE), as well as the English, Irish, Dutch and Spanish spoken languages. With the machine learning capabilities of the SignON services we allow the framework to adapt not only to the user, new use-cases and languages, but also to generate data for future research.
The SignON mission is to increase inclusiveness through accessible, seamless to use, translation services powered by state-of-the-art Artificial Intelligence.
