Estimates have shown that the population of native ASL speakers falls between 250,000 and 500,000, but there have always been a shortage of education in ASL in U.S schools and colleges due to the lack of certified teachers. As a result, many Deaf and Hard-of-hearing students face many challenges in the classroom and everyday life: facing challenges with hearing aids and lip reading, social concerns, language deficiency, lack of support and empathy from others. Seeing this problem, we have decided to build this hand-gesture recognition A.I. to assist the learning of sign language for everyone.
Aim & Scope
With this product, we aim to:
- Bridge the gap in education for Deaf and Hard-of-hearing students
- Help address the shortage of instructors and interpreters in sign languages.
- Provide resources in learning sign language for all students.
- The first cell is importing the libraries
- The next 6 cells are to import the information from training and testing CSV file on google drive of the pixels of different hand gesture images
- Then it organizes the data and prepares it for training
- Then some more libraries were imported and the neural network is created
- Data training
- The AI predicts
We believe that with this product, we could help to better the educational experience for everyone, especially the hearing-impaired. We believe that it would become a convenient, helpful, and easy-to-use tool for everyone.
