Translating popular children’s books into sign language using AI

Our team at OmniBridge loves to keep up with the latest in Deaf Tech, and we are always excited to learn about ways other companies are using tech for good, including new applications of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML).

A little while back, we read about an Android app called StorySign, which was developed by engineers at Huawei in collaboration with the European Union for the Deaf, Penguin Books, and Aardman Animations. As reported by Venture Beat, StorySign “leverages AI tools such as image recognition and optical character recognition (OCR) to translate popular children’s books into sign language.” If you’d like to learn more about the story and the science behind this innovative product, check out this video from Huawei’s YouTube channel!
