1 February 2021 until 29 February 2024
Project member(s)
, , Project EASIER wordt uitgevoerd door een consortium van 14 partners uit acht Europese landen.
Project type

EASIER proposes an innovative, intelligent translation framework that places deaf individuals at the center of interaction, whether it takes place at school, workplace, or home. This will be achieved by exploiting advanced technologies for sign language recognition, animation, and machine translation, along with expert knowledge, high-end communication technologies, beyond-state-of-the-art data processing, and machine learning pipelines.

Radboud University is responsible for the transfer of the technologies to other sign languages than the project languages, in particular those for which new resources have yet to be developed.
