Prof. Lambert Schomaker (ALICE institute) obtained a NWO grant of EUR 400,000 in the 'Digging into Data' round with a joint proposal by McGill University (Montreal), Stanford University (USA) and Ecole de technologie supérieure (Montréal). ALICE’s task in this project is the design of pattern-recognition algorithms for the induction of semantic concepts from historical document images.
Apart from text itself, there is a wealth of visual information available on each of the scans: author markings, illuminated capitals, schematic drawings, special symbols and glyphs that can give an insight into the underlying meaning and provenance of a piece of text. Data mining allows for tracing 'visual memes' over networks of authors. In this project ALICE will apply and extend the knowledge that has been developed in the Monk system for googling in large historical manuscript image collections.
NWO granted 6 projects in total in the 'Digging into Data' round.
