Right. I looked at the Corel demo on line. I get it.
the ultimate table napkin.
Seriously, the traffic accident systems, the HAZMAT
inspection systems, etc. could make use of this.
I think you may
excessively unimpressed!! ... I think this *could* be a brilliant little
application of technology.
But since I haven't actually seen this
thing in action I am speculating.
By capturing human-drawn shapes
(writing or other annotation) on a tablet PC where there may be a diagram of
an industrial plant, component etc etc a human can annotate exactly in
relation to the diagram and transmit the annotations to whichever colleague
needs them. Assuming the SVG was set up to animate to hide / show the
annotations ... and the same for any annotated responses sent back again ...
there could be a superb tool for interaction with remote sites.
a look at the workflow scenarios on the Corel site too.
To me it makes eminently good sense to leave the
decipherment of the human doodlings to the human brain. If you can capture
the shapes and their position faithfully you avoid the training phenomenon
for the computer altogether.
At least that's how I hope it works.
