Hi Everyone, this event is now over, but you can listen to the conversation in the Webinar Recording: http://idigbio.adobeconnect.com/p65yarolyd7/

Demo and Webinar Abstract: Huge amounts of handwritten historical documents are becoming easily available worldwide in the form of digital image collections.  However, the real marrow behind these digital images, namely their textual content, remains completely inaccessible in practice.  This webinar introduces automatic and computer-assited solutions for the indexing, search and full transcription of handwritten document images, developed in the tranScriptorium project.  The webinar will also introduce the Transkribus platform, which integrates some of these solutions and provides flexible support for common image processing tasks entailed by both individual and collaborative management of handwritten image collections.

When: 1500 UTC; 11 AM EDT

Presenters: Günter Mühlberger, Enrique Vidal and Joan Andreu Sánchez

This workshop is brought to you by Transcriptorium through a collaboration between iDigBio and Synthesys3.
