Open Source at new mediaist

Gradematic has been developed from the ground up using open source software. We are grateful to the open source community for their contributions, and try to support the community when we can. We currently maintain three open source projects related to the field of ICR, aka intelligent character recognition), and hope our contributions can help achieve the long term "strech goal" of the development of a truly open source handwriting recognition engine, also known as HWR.


The Open ICR project goal is to build an open source solution for recognizing handwritten characters.
