Generative Adversarial Nets (GANs) for the Enhancement of Ancient Manusctripts

Status: available Supervisor: Simon Brenner Problem Statement Multispectral Imaging (MSI) has proven a powerful tool to recover degraded texts in historic manuscripts. In this context, the goal of image enhancement methods is to take the raw multispectral images as input and produce and output image with maximal visibility/legibility of a degraded text. Fig. 1 shows … Continue reading Generative Adversarial Nets (GANs) for the Enhancement of Ancient Manusctripts

3D Surface Structures of Ancient Manuscripts

Status: available Supervisor: Simon Brenner Problem Statement Naturally, historic manuscripts are valuable sources of information. However, not only the letters and drawings made with ink and pigments hold information, but also the three-dimensional structure of the material itself. Examples of interesting features are ruling lines or textual comments drawn with a hard tool (“hard point … Continue reading 3D Surface Structures of Ancient Manuscripts
