Annelies Braffort - "What is a sign? A multidisciplinary overview for a finer definition for automatic processing" (30min + 10min for Q&A)

Short description: Most works on the automatic processing of sign languages manipulate the notion of sign by considering it as the equivalent of a word/gloss in written languages. But what is it really? This keynote proposes to revisit the notion of sign by drawing on current knowledge in linguistics and science of movement, in order to identify the limits and possible progress in automatic processing, and more particularly in automatic recognition and sign spotting.


Richard Bowden - "Translating between Sign and Spoken Languages" (30min + 10min for Q&A)

Short description: This talk will discuss ongoing work across several linked projects into sign language translation. It will discuss the fundamentals of sign, the challenges of translation and recent work in translating sign language videos to spoken language as well as generating photo realistic video from spoken language sentences.


Break (15min)
