Second International SignON Seminar

On the 16th of December, Maartje De Meulder, deaf scholar and currently a lecturer/senior researcher at HU - University of Applied Sciences Utrecht, who specialises in Deaf Studies, gave an internal seminar to our consortium. She spoke about Deaf Studies, how it has evolved over the years, and how it can help to provide insights now. She is the author of a paper on sign language technologies (such as machine translation systems and sign language avatars): Is "good enough" good enough? Ethical and responsible development of sign language technologies.
