Humans in the Loop

Data transcription interfaces and elegant, carefully-considered functionality are critical to the short and long-term success of current and future specimen data capture in on-going digitization efforts of biodiversity collections.

While this first hackathon centers around the task of getting data from OCR output parsed into semantically meaningful parts for insertion into a database, the AOCR working group is acutely aware that humans-in-the-loop are critical to the efficacy of the entire effort. Whether humans begin the transcription process or clean up what algorithms insert automatically into a data record, a well thought out interface between the human and the database is essential.
