NovoDynamics'(R) VERUS(TM) OCR Supports Responsa Project

World's Most Comprehensive Searchable Digital Library of Judaic Studies

ANN ARBOR, MI -- (Marketwire) -- 04/06/11 -- NovoDynamics®, Inc., a recognized leader in providing advanced information capture and analysis solutions, today announced that VERUS™, the company's advanced global language optical character recognition (OCR) solution, is being utilized by Israel's Bar-Ilan University Responsa Project to expand its library of Judaic studies.

Bar-Ilan has assumed a leadership role in bringing Jewish studies into the 21st century. Its Responsa Project is the most comprehensive and easily searchable digital Jewish library in the world with the largest electronic collection of keyed-in and proofread texts of Jewish literature. The texts cover thousands of years of writing, from the Bible and the Talmud to current volumes. There are more than one billion bits of data now available on CD, flash drive and the internet, which is widely available to students, researchers and the public.

The Responsa Project began 40 years ago and remains active today as researchers have embarked on a 10-year work plan to add another 40,000 books and 10 million bits of data to the library. Relying heavily on optical character recognition technology (OCR), actual letters of texts will be copied from the page to the computer memory, enabling users easy access to information. NovoDynamic's VERUS™ OCR for Middle Eastern languages is helping researchers overcome some of the difficulties in recognizing the ancient Hebrew texts that are an integral part of the Responsa Project.

"We are extremely excited that the Responsa Project has identified VERUS™ for Middle Eastern Languages as a way to support this endeavor," said David Rock, Present and CEO of NovoDynamics. "As the most advanced Semitic language OCR solution, VERUS is able to detect Farsi, Dari and Pashto languages, among others, which should be extremely helpful with this exceptional project."

NovoDynamics VERUS™ OCR for Middle Eastern Languages has also supported efforts by Egypt's Biblioteca Alexandrina to identify texts in the ancient Library of Alexandria and Project AMEEL (Arabic and Middle Eastern Electronic Library), a project of Stanford and Yale Universities to create a scholarly web-based portal for the study of Middle Eastern history, languages and culture.

The precious oil is extracted from the seeds of prickly pear cactus plant. After taking out the seeds from the fruits, they are adequately dried and then cold pressed to obtain the oil. Indeed, the prickly seed oil is quite expensive. Well, that is understandable when you consider the fact that the seeds are really tiny and each seed contain only about 5% of oil in it at most, plus the seeds are usually handpicked from the fruits. This means it will take tons of these seeds to produce just one b...
