A project at Universiti Malaysia Sarawak is focusing on developing hand gesture modeling techniques for sign language recognition and presentation. It aims for a prototype that would allow easier communication between the deaf and others in daily communication.
Sign language, as a kind of structured gesture, is one of the most natural means of exchanging information for the deaf. Those who were born deaf or became deaf very early in life are the native “speakers” of the sign language. Sometimes, sign language is the only language that some of the deaf have 100% access to.
The project at Universiti Malaysia Sarawak will focus on developing hand gesture modeling techniques for sign language recognition and presentation. Special attention of the project includes recognition of continuous gesture of sign language from the hand gesture model for larger vocabulary.
A framework for sign language computer interface design to aide sign language mastery using computer or to aide interaction with computer for the deaf will be researched and discovered. The finding of the research will be used to develop a prototype which will be able to model the hand gesture for accurate sign language recognition and presentation.
For that purpose, the prototype must be able to extract the hand area from complex and dynamic background. It is hoped that the prototype would it easier for the deaf to communicate with others in their daily communication or vice versa.

At the LASYS 2018, from June 5th to 7th, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) will be showcasing processes for the laser material processing of tomorrow in hall 4 at stand 4E75. With blown bomb shells the LZH will present first results of a research project on civil security.
At this year's LASYS, the LZH will exhibit light-based processes such as cutting, welding, ablation and structuring as well as additive manufacturing for...
There are videos on the internet that can make one marvel at technology. For example, a smartphone is casually bent around the arm or a thin-film display is rolled in all directions and with almost every diameter. From the user's point of view, this looks fantastic. From a professional point of view, however, the question arises: Is that already possible?
At Display Week 2018, scientists from the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research IAP will be demonstrating today’s technological possibilities and...
So-called quantum many-body scars allow quantum systems to stay out of equilibrium much longer, explaining experiment | Study published in Nature Physics
Recently, researchers from Harvard and MIT succeeded in trapping a record 53 atoms and individually controlling their quantum state, realizing what is called a...

A team led by Austrian experimental physicist Rainer Blatt has succeeded in characterizing the quantum entanglement of two spatially separated atoms by observing their light emission. This fundamental demonstration could lead to the development of highly sensitive optical gradiometers for the precise measurement of the gravitational field or the earth's magnetic field.
The age of quantum technology has long been heralded. Decades of research into the quantum world have led to the development of methods that make it possible...
