Introduction to the SIMSSA Optical Music Recognition Workflow System.

In many machine learning systems, it would be effective to create a pedagogical environment where both the machines and the humans can incrementally learn to solve problems through interaction and adaptation. We are designing an optical music recognition workflow system within the SIMSSA (Single Interface for Music Score Searching and Analysis) project, where human operators can intervene to correct and teach the system at certain stages in the optical music recognition process so that both parties can learn from the errors and, consequently, the overall performance is increased progressively as more music scores are processed.
