Computers Learn to speak watching TV

Computers now a days have been granted with a very high number of communication abilities, like text recognition, or some early form of speech recognition.

Oxford University researchers have created a program that allows a computer to recognize sign language when watching TV, now, itself is already a big task, furthermore they ere able to allow the computer learn the language without external help, then after watching a TV program featuring sign language commentator, the computer will be capable of recognizing as many words as they showed in the program.

This presents a great hop in recognition field, as it may allow deaf and mute people to interact with robots and computer maybe in a more seamless way than we already do.
