A Signing Avatar System for Turkish to Turkish Sign Language Machine Translation

This project supported by a TÜBİTAK 1003 grant (no: 114E263) has been condcuted between 15/10/2014-15/10/2016 as a colloboration between İstanbul Technical University ve Boun University. In this project, it is aimed to design and develop a translation and visualization method in order to minimize the difference in the literacy learning time between the children with hearing impairments at the primary school level and the children with normal development. Research groups from three different disciplines worked together. These are, ITU Natural Language Processing Group (led by Assoc. Prof. Dr. Gülşen Eryiğit), Boun Sign Language Linguistics Group (led by Assoc. Prof. Meltem Kelepir), ITU Human-Robot Interaction Group (led by Assoc. Prof. Dr. Hatice Köse). This web page only presents the outputs of the NLP layers. Visualization (Animation) studies are not provided in this page and may be obtained via direct communication to ITU HumanRobot Interaction Group.
