We are embarking on a project to build on these existing open-source tools, and to improve the accuracy of the XML output. One aim of the project is to combine some of the existing tools in a modular PDF-to-XML conversion pipeline that achieves a better overall conversion result compared to using individual tools on their own.

In addition, we are experimenting with a different approach to the problem: using computer vision to identify key components of the scientific manuscript in PDF format. The type of content in the PDF could be identified by its positioning and formatting.

This image is a derivative of and attributed to Schneemann, I. Title, authors, institutions, abstract, and introduction are all indicated simply by their location and shape on the page. For a computer vision algorithm, this is not such an easy task. In order for it to be able to extract good metadata from the myriad variations in font, layout and content of PDFs from different sources, we need to train our system with a wide variety of PDFs and their corresponding XML.

Our hope is that the wide variety of papers and formats in this corpus will help our system learn to deduce the structure of a research paper well enough to be useful in real-world applications. The anticipated project outputs can be summarised as: Tools and a customisable pipeline for converting PDF to XML A trained and tested computer vision model to improve the accuracy of PDF-to-XML conversion A training pipeline for the community to run other training datasets for the computer vision model It will not be possible to publicly release all of the training data, although any public training data as well as the trained model can and will be made public as the model sufficiently abstracts from the original data.

Technical overview Here, we explain the technical background to the computer vision approach of the ScienceBeam project in more detail, and outline the process we are developing. An overview of the model training pipeline, including the training data generation and the training process. So far we have trained the model on PDFs, each from a different journal.

These are PDFs from publishers, therefore they have been through production and are more structured already than author versions. Ultimately, for the pipeline to be useful for converting author PDFs, such as those shared through preprint servers, into XML for text mining, we will need to continue to train the model on these author-submitted PDFs.

These have more variety in their structure, plus the quality and coverage of the accompanying metadata are more variable.

Submission history

First, we need a good model from the best data we have that from the publisher side. In the case of computer vision, we will also need the exact coordinates.

CERMINE first identifies individual words and text blocks zones and then assigns the best matching tag to the whole zone. It also describes challenging real-world applications where vision is being successfully used, both for specialized applications such as medical imaging, and for fun, consumer-level tasks such as image editing and stitching, which students can apply to their own personal photos and videos.

These problems are also analyzed using statistical models and solved using rigorous engineering techniques. Suitable for an upper-level undergraduate or graduate-level course in computer science or engineering, this textbook focuses on basic techniques that work under real-world conditions and encourages students to push their creative boundaries.

Computer Vision

Its design and exposition also make it eminently suitable as a unique reference to the fundamental techniques and current research literature in computer vision.

This text draws on that experience, as well as on computer vision courses he has taught at the University of Washington and Stanford. Skip to main content Skip to table of contents.

We could map them to unique colours that humans can distinguish, like so: A PNG file with tagged blocks represented by human-distinguishable colours. Step 4: Train public TensorFlow model using transformed PDFs TensorFlow is an open-source machine learning library that is mostly used to implement deep neural networks.

An overview of the public TensorFlow model training pipeline. Before training the TensorFlow model, the training data will be converted into a form that can be more efficiently processed: the annotated PDF training data will be rendered to PNG and then to TFRecords.

More efficient training will reduce the time it takes to train the model, and thus reduce the cost. When we feel the inference model is sufficiently accurate, we will export it for public use. In general this is an semantic segmentation task: the model is meant to detect and annotate regions with tags, such as the title.

We expect the model to learn that from appearance rather than by being able to read the text. For example: This image is a derivative of and attributed to Schneemann, I.

Comparison of selected cryoprotective agents to stabilize meiotic spindles of human oocytes during cooling. To find the manuscript title, we would look for the blue coloured area.

There are further details about the training so far on the Wiki. We welcome ideas and suggestions from the community as to how to improve this methodology.

Please provide feedback on issue 1 of the Github repository. Enhance the training of the public Grobid Once the PDF elements are annotated following step two above , it would become feasible to generate training data for other PDF-to-XML conversion models that use machine learning, including Grobid.

Adding our training data into Grobid will improve the accuracy of its algorithm and benefit existing Grobid users. Annotating PDF elements with XML tags the output data from step 2 above will help to generate Grobid training data, regardless of the success of our planned TensorFlow model.

The tutorials are divided into 7 parts; they are: Part 1: Foundations. These have more variety in their structure, plus the quality and coverage of the accompanying metadata are more variable.

For this stage, we are more interested in the areas than the individual elements: we plan to convert the annotated PDF elements to coloured blocks, each representing a separate tag.

In order for it to be able to extract good metadata from the myriad variations in font, layout and content of PDFs from different sources, we need to train our system with a wide variety of PDFs and their corresponding XML.
