Google is sponsoring an artificial-intelligence research group's work to develop advanced technologies for character recognition.

The open source project, called Ocropus, has several goals, including developing a high-level, easy-to-use handwriting recognition system that can convert handwritten documents to computer text, assisting in the creation of electronic libraries, analysing historical documents and helping vision-impaired people access information. The "ocr" in Ocropus stands for optimal character recognition.

The project is headquartered at the Image Understanding and Pattern Recognition (IUPR) research group at the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI) in Kaiserslautern, Germany. DFKI professor Thomas Breuel is leading the project.

At the rate Google is going, someday they might just have technology to read our thoughts.

If they could put a Search option in my mind, just tell me where to sign up. I've got everything so scattered as it is.

...handwriting recognition system that can convert handwritten documents to computer text...

If they waste their time trying to recognize my handwriting, it's going to cost them several billion extra. I can't even read it myself.
