I am happy to report that on March 10, 2017, I had my doctoral dissertation defense, as part of the WebSign project, and that the committee found my research to be worthy. My dissertation was titled “Machine Translation for Sign Language based on Statistical Approach” and was based on translation between American Sign Language and English written text, as well as new transcription system for Sign Language based on Gloss Annotation System was proposed.
