When it comes to improved technology and gadgets to help people with various disabilities, science has come a long way and made it possible for over hundreds of thousands of people to lead a better and easier life. From home robots that help you to make a doctor’s appointment to electronic wheelchairs that help you climb a flight of stairs, the marvels of modern science have taken an entirely new dimension, much to the gratitude of common man.

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.
