Paper Abstract

The digital cleaning of dirty and old documents and the binarization into a black/white image can be a tedious process. It is usually done by experts. In this article a method is shown that is easy for the end user. Untrained persons are able to do this task now while before an expert was needed. The method uses interactive evolutionary computing to program image processing operations that act on the document image.
