Week 2: Writing with Sign Language

This week I experimented more with image classifiers and built regression and classification examples.  In the end, I used KNN classification to build a program that detects sign language and will type the sign your show on the screen.  Figure 1 shows the process of training the model.  To train the model I show the camera a letter in sign language and then clicked the corresponding keyboard key.

 Once the program was trained I wrote the world hello by signing to the camera (Figure 2).
