Request for Hardware Sponsorship 

linedanceAI is seeking a subsidy sponsorship from ADLINK Technology Inc on the purchase of 6 GPU-Solutions with the minimum technical specifications noted below (ADLINK equivalent may be the MVP-6100, DLAP-4000, or DLAP-3000). The ADLINK hardware will be utilized by Deaf participants crowd-sourced from around the USA to build the first-ever, 3D movement-based American Sign Language (ASL) annotated database. 

About the 3D Database:

For technical innovation to advance in Accessibility, a comprehensive collection of annotated sign movements sourced from Deaf ASL signers across the USA using linedanceAI patented system, will create quality standards, accelerate adoption and application exploration for a NEW Era of Accessibility. The database will be made available in a public repository at the conclusion of the initial sign capture period (June 2020).

3000 signs, each with 90 samples, collected from 3 major partners in the US, will generate a technology dataset of upwards to 810,000 data points – the most comprehensive 3D ASL database in the world designed for machine-learning and software development engineers.

How will the units be used?

Each of our 3 major partners (Austin, TX; Denver, CO; Washington DC) will receive 1-2 units with corresponding Azure Kinects in February. All of our partners are Deaf-led and include non-profits, small businesses, researchers and state agency vendors. ‘Fringe’ projects will be conducted with other organizations and events throughout the US between February and June 2020 as well.

Can ADLINK leverage the sponsorship?

The primary project sponsor reserves the right to lead all marketing and PR opportunities. The project itself is in relative ‘stealth-mode’ until that sponsor’s launch for Global Accessibility Day May 21, 2020. 

  • Yes! In conjunction and following their launch, ADLINK may create their own campaigns.

  • Yes! All units may boldly carry the ADLINK identity.

  • Yes! ADLINK will have a dedicated partnership space in the database development page.

  • Yes! linedanceAI commits to co-branding efforts featuring the ADLINK hardware.

ADLINK makes a great #TechforGood partner

We worked together before at CES2018 #AccessibleOlli. KinTrans ran a localized sign language translator and signing avatar using ADLINK AI vision systems.
