Xing Liang, Anastassia Angelopoulou, Epaminondas Kapetanios, Bencie Woll, Reda Al-batat, Tyron Woolfe
2020 arXiv   pre-print
In this paper, however, we demonstrate novelty in the following way: a) a multi-modal machine learning based automatic recognition toolkit for early stages of dementia among BSL users in that features  ...  any sign language, since it is language independent, c) given the trade-off between complexity and accuracy of machine learning (ML) prediction models as well as the limited amount of training and testing  ...  Facing this challenge, we outlined a machine learning based methodological approach and developed a toolkit capable of automatically recognising early stages of dementia without the need for sign language  ...
