ASL Recognition with Metric-Learning based Lightweight Network 2020  ·  Evgeny Izutov ·

In the past decades the set of human tasks that are solved by machines was extended dramatically. From simple image classification problems researchers now move towards solving more sophisticated and vital problems, like, autonomous driving and language translation. The case of language translation includes a challenging area of sign language translation that incorporates both image and language processing. We make a step in that direction by proposing a lightweight network for ASL gesture recognition with a performance sufficient for practical applications. The proposed solution demonstrates impressive robustness on MS-ASL dataset and in live mode for continuous sign gesture recognition scenario. Additionally, we describe how to combine action recognition model training with metric-learning to train the network on the database of limited size. The training code is available as part of Intel OpenVINO Training Extensions.
