Label Babel 3 – Rise of the Machines
We are excited to announce our next installment in the Digi-Leap series. The Digi-Leap project is focused on developing workflows to accelerate specimen digitization and make the data broadly available to museums and stakeholders alike.
In this newest installment we’ll be asking for your help again with the label segmentation part of our workflow. Label segmentation is the process of automatically pulling the labels off of the specimen images. This process makes the next step of text extraction more effective since there will be less clutter in the image. The results of our previous expedition were promising, but we recently realized that we wanted to further refine the model. For this expedition we’ll focus on showing you how the labels are getting segmented and ask you to evaluate the results.
Please give Label Babel 3 – Rise of the Machines a try and let us know what you think.
