Multimodal Interactive Pattern Recognition and Applications. Springer. 2011. Alejandro H. Toselli, Enrique Vidal, Francisco Casacuberta (Editors). 1st Edition.

This chapter presents several full working prototype demos of multimodal interactive pattern recognition applications. These demos serve as validating examples of the approaches that have been proposed and described throughout this book. Among other interesting things, they are designed to enable a true human-computer interaction on selected tasks. To begin, we shall expound the different protocols that were tested, namely Passive, Left-to-Right Protocol, Passive, Desultory Protocol, and Active Protocol. Then an overview of each demonstrator is sufficiently detailed to give the reader an overview of the underlying technologies. The prototypes covered in this chapter are related to transcription of text images (MM-IHT, GIDOC), machine translation (IMT), speech transcription (IST), text generation (ITG), and image retrieval (RISE). Additionally, most of these prototypes shall present evaluation measures about the amount of user effort reduction at the end of the process. Finally, some of such demos come with web-based versions, whose addresses are included to allow the reader to test and practice with the different implemented applications.
