As part of the HIMANIS project (HIstorical MANuscript Indexing for user-controlled Search), Enrique Vidal (professor of computer science at the Universitat Politècnica de València – Spain) will give a conference entitled:
Technologies for handwritten text image recognition, search and alignment
Wednesday 22 June 2016 at 14h00
Three types of technologies which have been developed at the Pattern Recognition and Human Language Technology (PRHLT) research center of the UPV will be outlined, each followed by live demonstrations:
1. Automatic and computer assisted (interactive) handwritten text recognition.
2. Indexing and Search for large collections of handwritten text images.
3. Aligning existing transcripts with corresponding text images: line, word and character-level alignments.
