    • Symbol Level Groundtruthing Environment in OMR 

      Droettboom, Michael; Fujinaga, Ichiro (Proceedings of the 5th ISMIR Conference, 2004)
      A simple framework for evaluating OMR at the symbol level is presented. While a true evaluation of an OMR system requires a high-level analysis, the automation of which is a largely unsolved problem, many high-level ...
    • Optical music interpretation 

      Droettboom, Michael; Fujinaga, Ichiro; MacMillan, Karl (Proceedings of the Joint IAPR International Workshop on Structural, Syntactic, and Statistical Pattern Recognition, 2003)

      This paper describes our continued work of a unique robotics project, Comprehensive Access to Printed Materials (CAPM), within the context of libraries. As libraries provide a growing array of digital library services and ...
    • Choice and Empowerment 

      Choudhury, Sayeed; DiLauro, Tim; Martino, James (Campus Technology eLearning Dialogue, 2005-01-19)
      Given the diversity of software now populating the eLearning environment, the authors pose the question whether end users, and IT managers, are better served by service-oriented architectures or fully integrated system ...
    • Using the Gamera framework for the recognition of cultural heritage materials 

      Droettboom, Michael; Fujinaga, Ichiro; MacMillan, Karl; Choudhury, Sayeed; DiLauro, Tim; Patton, Mark; Anderson, Teal (2002)
      This paper presents a new toolkit for the creation of customized structured document recognition applications by domain experts. This open-source system, called Gamera, allows a user, with particular knowledge of the ...
    • The Gamera framework for building custom recognition systems 

      Droettboom, Michael; Macmillan, Karl; Fujinaga, Ichiro (2003)
      This paper describes the Gamera framework for building custom document recognition systems. This open-source system is designed to support the test-and-refine development cycle: an important style for developing recognition ...
    • Gamera: A Python-based Toolkit for Structured Document Recognition 

      Macmillan, Karl; Droettboom, Michael; Fujinaga, Ichiro (2001)
