What happens after the SignON Project ends?

The extensive research conducted within SignON raised a lot of new questions and ideas. Firstly, after SignON, different subgroups will continue their work on developing better models for recognition, synthesis, translation, etc. This will be possible not only for researchers from the SignON consortium, but also for others, as the framework and code will be freely available as open-source software. We will also continue to collaborate through our established network. Secondly, we will continue to look into one of the major issues for AI these days: data. We will collect new and process existing data to provide as many resources as possible to further development. We will continue to organise events to promote the work on sign languages and the idea of sign languages as language and cultural treasures. We have drawn up a two-year plan for the advancement of the SignON application into a viable product.
