The mBillionth Award South Asia is an annual award ceremony initialized in 2010 and since then awarded for innovations in mobile communications in South Asia. With its mission stated “to recognize and honor excellence in mobile communications across South Asia recognizing and felicitating mobile innovations, applications and content services delivery”, the award is open to governments, individuals, private sector companies, academic institutions, and NGOs in any of the eight SAARC countries (Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka).
The mBillionth Awards 2016 was held on the 23rd of July 2016 at the Eros Hotel, Nehru Place, India. It was organized and hosted by the Digital Empowerment Foundation (DEF) in partnership with Google and Qualcomm and was also the 7th mBillionth Award Ceremony held.
This year, the mBillionth Awards received 348 entries from India, Afghanistan Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Malvides, Bangladesh, Bhutan and Nepal, of which 69 were shortlisted as Finalists. Twenty-five of them were nominated as Winners across 10 categories while six others received the Jurors’ Mention at mBillionth Awards Gala. Among the winners of these categories were our very own Sri Lankan Museums, Katha, PickMe The Vision Guard and Sign Language Interpreter.
Now you’ve heard of the other winners but what’s Sign Language Interpreter? Developed by G3 Solutions, Sign Language Interpreter is an initiative from Sri Lanka. The product is aimed at providing an environment to communicate in Deaf Sign Language. The product emerged victorious under the category of Inclusion & Empowerment Category, competing against 32 nominations for this category.
In addition, Sign Language Interpreter (or simply SLI) also was selected as a finalist for the e-Swabhimani – National Best e-Content Award –Sri Lanka, scheduled to be held later this year.
The product translates text/voice into sign language using a 3D model. As such, it will identify each word and construct the related 3D animation of each sign and combine them automatically. Finally, the translated 3D animation will act as a sign translator which will display the translated message continuously.
Available on a number of platforms such as mobile, and Web, the translator can even read articles via deaf language and a standalone application to learn deaf language.
We, from the ReadMe team would like to wish the team over at G3 Solutions all the very best in their future endeavors. May the odds be ever in their favor.
