Event: DASH Fellow Daniel Hanson Thesis Presentation, “Combining Human and Machine Transcriptions on the Zooniverse Platform”

Thursday, May 3

9:30 AM

2nd Floor Seminar Room, Tate Hall, East Bank

Abstract:  “As document digitization becomes increasingly efficient, there is a strong need to make historic documents searchable. Crowdsourcing platforms such as Zooniverse attempt to address this problem with large numbers of people, but eventually we will need to overcome this through automatic methods. Machine transcription is not yet perfect so we must find ways to combine the results of machine and human transcriptions. In this talk, I will discuss the state of the art in machine transcription and how to incorporate it into the Zooniverse platform.”
