Let's have a talk about descriptors.
Open Source Bar Exam Prep Using Anki
By: Kat Ross
Experience Level: Novice
Length: 10 Minutes
I will be presenting some of my current work using Python and Django to develop an open source program for professional students. This program enables students to easily peer-review and create a functioning deck of unique Anki flash cards without any prior programming experience. Anki is currently the most sought after open source flash card creation system by professional students. However due to a learning curve (and time) required to create a quality deck, many students still do not take advantage of this resource. This program seeks to change that. Come see and hear how!
Transcribing Human Gestures With Mediapipe in Python
By: Jimmy Scray
Experience Level: Intermediate
Length: 10 Minutes
Have you wondered how gestures are loaded into a computer?
Or are you questioning if transcribing our movements is even possible?
Well, it is possible... But not without its own unique set of problems.
This talk touches on everything in the transcription process from the client side to the server side.
So how did we do it?
We used Mediapipe's machine-learning neural net library to transcribe our movements and gestures to XYZ coordinates. We then created a web crawler to transcribe all of the data from the American Sign Language (ASL) website. We are in process of normalizing this data based on angles related to one another.
The next step of the process, transcribing live gestures and movements is still in development, so let's talk about it!
