American Sign Language Reader

Hi! My name is Pranav Bhramasandra, and my project is centered around the use of Artificial Intelligence and Sign Language where I used a Transformer model to interpret ASL. I chose this project after I was inspired by the idea of being able to connect the verbal and non-verbal communities together. In the future, I hope my model can be used in a classroom to help someone make friends and communicate more easily.

Student review
I think the speed of response was really fast, and I like the interface for the messages.
Project description

This experience-oriented project intends to allow the student to experience the workflow of a computer vision/ classification project with machine learning. This project is to complete a Kaggle competition that leverages machine learning to help hearing-impacted communities better communicate with people outside of the community. The project will use machine learning to interpret American sign language into English phrases so that it builds a bridge to connect the hearing-impacted community to other communities.
