Sign Language Recognition using scikit-learn* (sklearn): Developer Spotlight

1 0 19.3K

American Sign Language (ASL) is a primary and natural language that serves as the prime sign language of Deaf communities. ASL is communicated by movements of the hands and face. Sign Language Recognition technology is a computational process that involves recognizing actions from sign languages. This is an important problem to find a solution, in the digital world to bridge the communication gap that is faced by deaf people communities.

Vatika Agrawal in her blog proposed a solution to Sign Language Recognition using Hand landmark model (using MediaPipe), Random Forest Classifier and Intel® Extension for Scikit-learn*.

The blog explains the various steps involved in the project:

  1. Installation of required libraries.
  2. Data Preprocessing
  3. Model Training
  4. Model Testing
