The Chair of Artificial Intelligence and Knowledge Systems is currently involved in a variety of projects. In the following, you will find information on current research projects:
Segmentation of old prints and integration into OCR pipeline: Recognition of image and text regions in scans of old prints using different methods (including pixel classifier, contour-based approaches, baseline approaches), recognition and interpretation of tables in documents. Recognition of handwritten artifacts in old scans (project: internal project with ZPD, Würzburg; successor of joint project Kallimachos).
Image analysis in medicine: Detection of polyps in real time in endoscopy videos (Project: IZKF with Prof. Meining), interpretation of radiological and endoscopic images, localization of an endoscope in the intestine.
OMR (Optical Music Recognition): Transcription of song texts in old manuscripts: Segmentation of notes and text as well as their transcription and assignment (Project: Corpus Monodicum with Prof. Haug)
Natural Language Processing:
Legal judgment analysis to search for similar judgments to a legal case (Jana project with RenoStar GmbH)
Medical information extraction from textual documents such as diagnostic reports, request documents (DZ-PTM project with University Hospital Würzburg and Prof. Hotho, Prof. Latoschik)
Character Recognition in Novels (Succession of Kallimachos)
Data extraction from tables in documents
Knowledge processing and exploration:
Simulation of heating systems for anomaly detection and optimization (KINERGY project of BMWi with ENER-IQ, SEnerCon, and Prof. Seipel)
Development of a data warehouse with exploration of data and ad-hoc information extraction (focus: medical applications)
