The ABBy Project = AI + Ballet + Bridge

Charles Elwood's avatar Charles Elwood

My ArtPrize project is at the Hyatt Place Downtown Grand Rapids until Oct 3rd. The project showcases two important projects "The Maria Project" which seeks to build a customized sign language "Stephen Hawkings" type interpreter for a people with disabilities. My second project is a body language/emotion interpreter that converts detects and translates ballet steps into emotions. I then ask the audience to let me know where they would apply this. Some of the ideas include: detecting balance/fatigue for constructions workers working on roofs, detecting occupancy for firemen needing to enter a building, helping stroke or brain injury victims learn to speak again, helping blind people with reading menus/prescription bottles, and detecting mental health behaviors.
