Communication is vital in our day-to-day lives. It is the basis for all human interactions. It is how people pass on information to other people and receive information from them. A person with a speaking or hearing problem cannot communicate properly with others. A person who is deaf or dumb usually uses Sign Language to communicate with others. But normal people who do not know Sign language cannot communicate with them properly. Most people find it difficult to apprehend ISL gestures. This has created a communication gap between the hearing and speech impaired and those who do not understand ISL. Translation systems are required to help bridge the gap between the hearing- and speech-impaired community and the general population. The Talk focuses on developing an end-to-end system that is capable of recognizing the spoken language and interpreting the corresponding speech to animated sign language gestures and that is also capable of converting Indian Sign Language to speech. The talk also focuses on automatic extraction of emotions since emotions play a crucial role in human-to-human and human-to-machine interactions and that is important for both fair and good decisions.
