Title Using a Language Technology Infrastructure for German in order to Anonymize German Sign Language Corpus Data
Authors Julian Bleicken, Thomas Hanke, Uta Salden and Sven Wagner
Abstract For publishing sign language corpus data on the web, anonymization is crucial even if it is impossible to hide the visual appearance of the signers: In a small community, even vague references to third persons may be enough to identify those persons. In the case of the DGS Korpus (German Sign Language corpus) project, we want to publish data as a contribution to the cultural heritage of the sign language community while annotation of the data is still ongoing. This poses the question how well anonymization can be achieved given that no full linguistic analysis of the data is available. Basically, we combine analysis of all data that we have, including named entity recognition on translations into German. For this, we use the WebLicht language technology infrastructure. We report on the reliability of these methods in this special context and also illustrate how the anonymization of the video data is technically achieved in order to minimally disturb the viewer.
Topics Named Entity Recognition, Sign Language Recognition/Generation, LR Infrastructures and Architectures
