The LSFB lab at UNamur has been studying sign language since the 2000s. The lab is composed of 10 people including researchers, teachers and sign language experts. Since 2018, the LSFB Lab has been collaborating with the Artificial Intelligence Lab of the Faculty of Computer Science to develop tools for the analysis and understanding of the French-speaking sign language of Belgium.
The project of a parallel dictionary of the French sign language of Belgium (LSFB) into French aims at providing an online platform allowing deaf people or people wishing to learn LSFB to search for the meaning of a sign using their webcam. The creation of this platform, unique in the world, is the result of the work of the translators of the LSFB laboratory of Namur and the research in artificial intelligence carried out at the Faculty of Computer Science of Namur.
