Please be aware of - and where appropriate, lend your support to -
this Individual Engagement Grant proposal:
which I've put together with PlanetMath contributor Raymond Puzio.
Inspired by the PlanetMath Exchange project on Wikipedia, our aim with
this proposal is to improve the PlanetMath platform and make it easy
to produce mathematics textbooks, for export to places like
Wikisource. In particular, part of the grant proposal focuses on
developing novel approaches to mathematics OCR and proofreading, using
a combination of off-the-shelf and new open source systems.
Your endorsement of the grant proposal would mean a lot!
Please note: although we are targeting English initially in with the
proposal (as a demo), this will be relevant to other language
communities as well. I've announced the project on the English
language Wikisource Scriptorum, but if you can spread the word to
other language communities, please do. And please let me know if you
have any questions as well!
