Handwriting Interface to Mathematical Expressions
Masakazu Suzuki, Kyushu University
Thursday, May 11, 2006, at U. of Western Ontario.


Currently, computer algebra systems have different interfaces and notations to input math expressions, preventing sometimes users from easy use of them. There is no doubt that handwriting interface for math should be one of the most intuitive and easy method to manipulate computer algebra systems. In the lecture, the author describes the difficulty of handwritten math recognition and present his idea to overcome them. There will be some demonstration of handwriting interface connected to a computer algebra system as well. About the Speaker: Dr. Suzuki is the principal architect behind the Infty system for mathematical document recognition. For several years he has been a leader in the field of mathematical handwriting recognition, and has been invited to speak on this topic at numerous international conferences. He is also a serious mathematician whose research concentrates on complex analysis and affine algebraic geometry.
