Objectives and Approach

The objective of INTREPID is to develop new techniques for recognising and processing documents, demonstrate them in a development environment, and integrate them into an advanced application for the automatic classification of office documents. The INTREPID project is linked to ROCKI (project 5376). The planned recognition system must cope with a mixture of texts, line graphics, headings and grey-scale images, and with a variety of character sizes, styles and print qualities. Advanced distributed computer hardware will be used so that the increased requirements of new recognition algorithms and strategies can be satisfied.

INTREPID is aiming to:

The main workpackages can be grouped into four categories:

From Preprocessing to Postprocessing

Linguistic Contextual Postprocessing

Hardware and Software Architecture Definition and Prototype Implementation

Specific Application

Exploitation

The project will offer improved market possibilities, especially for the industrial partners of the consortium. The exploitation of the results will be most significant in the following ways:
