Draft report: Document Analysis with Transducers

In retrospect, I believe that this early draft is a much better document than the published papers discussing the powerful Graph Transformer Networks.

Abstract: We present here a general architecture for building Automatic Document Analysis Systems. This architecture is composed of a succession of modules transforming graphs describing lower-level hypotheses on the documents into graphs describing higher level hypotheses. This architecture generalizes techniques used in Neural Networks, Optical Character Recognition, Natural Language Processing and Speech Recognition.
