SearchInk is a self-learning, fully-automated technology for Handwritten Text Recognition (HTR). SearchInk analyses and extracts handwritten documents, enriches them with semantic connotations and makes them searchable.
In the later stages of development, we plan to transition to completely unsupervised learning. This will involve exposing the network to a huge number of documents, but without explicitly telling it the correct transcription. Instead, the network will independently learn to recognize features and to cluster similar text snippets, thus revealing hidden groups, links, or patterns within the data.
