Are you interested in digitization workflows for natural history museum
collections that involve OCR, machine learning and natural language
processing? iDigBio's first Hackathon starts this morning, Wednesday
February 13th and begins with 10 minute lightning talks by participants
sharing their results so far to parse OCR output. Participants will
spend 2 days together sharing and tweaking algorithms aimed at making
parsing OCR output better. Other big topics of the hackathon are image
processing/segmentation/analysis and also the continued need for
user-interface development for interacting with the OCR output
(front-end human-in-the-loop and api interfaces).
