Wednesday Video Fix- Sign language recognition and translation with Kinect

This week’s Wednesday Video Fix (1:44) goes into the latest language innovations. Microsoft Research Asia partnered with the Chinese Academy of Science (CAS) to work on a sign-language recognition system.

While the Microsoft’s Kinect detects the motions of sign-languages from all around the world, Bing translator recognises them and translates the signs into your chosen language.

Although the project is still a work in progress, have a look at the video that shows the results already achieved.
