Dionisio 2.0

Free Public AI Model for Handwritten Text Recognition with Transkribus

Dionisio 2.0

Prof. Vladimir Polomac (University of Kragujevac, Serbia) created the Dionisio 2.0. generic model for automatic recognition of Serbian Church Slavonic printed books of the 15th-17th centuries. The model was created based on the materials from various Serbian printing houses of the 15th-17th centuries (Cetinje, Venice, Goražde, Mileševa, Belgrade and Mrkša’a Church).

The percentage of incorrectly recognized characters on the validation set is 2.4%. The process of creating the model within CITLab HTR+ engine, its quantitative and qualitative performance are described in detail in a separate paper.

While the models based on the CITlabHTR+ technology are no longer available in Transkribus, the Dionisio 2.0. model has been retrained with PyLaia technology with the almost identical performances.
