Follow up project for tranScriptorium!

The tranScriptorium team together with several new high level partners from Austria, Finland, France, Germany, and Switzerland will continue its work as an e-Infrastructure project funded by the EU Commission. The main objectives of the READ project (Recognition and Enrichment of Archival Documents) are to further improve Handwritten Text Recognition (HTR) technology, to apply it to real world large scale demonstrators, to make the technology available via the TRANSKRIBUS platform and to boost research in the Pattern Recognition domain by providing large data sets of historical documents for training, testing and evaluation. The project will be coordinated by the University of Innsbruck, Digitisation and Digital Preservation group. It will presumably start in January 2016 and run until mid 2019 and receive funding of more than 8 mill. EUR.
