Document Analysis Algorithm Contributions in End-to-End Applications

Short Description

This contest aims to provide a metric giving indications on the influence of individual specific document analysis tools to overall end-to-end applications. Contestants are provided with a full, working pipeline operating on a raw document page image and proceeding to extract some final information. The pipeline is built with clearly identified analysis stages (e.g. binarization, skew detection, layout analysis, OCR ...) that have a formalized input and output. Contestants are invited to contribute their own algorithms as an alternative to one or more of the initially provided stages and evaluation will be done on the overall impact of the contributed algorithm to the final (end of pipeline) result.

Source Code Available

All the source code powering this web site, as well as other software tools (related to data import, conversion from other data sources etc.) are now available under GPL from Sourceforge. Feel free to contribute !
