Manuel Zapp’s Recognition of Sketched BP Models ranked third in the WI 2017 Prototype Award

We are happy to announce that Manuel Zapp has been honoured with a WI 2017 award at the 13th International Conference on Wirtschaftsinformatik (From 12 to 15 February 2017) for his work on the transfer of hand-drawn sketches of business process diagrams into machine interpretable formats. His contribution in the Software Campus Project INDIGO has achieved the 3rd place in the category “Prototype Award”.

Diverse diagramtypes have been established in the business process management in order to visually illustrate a company’s processes. Together with his Software Campus industry partner Software AG, Manuel Zapp has developed a procedure which is able to make hand-sketched process chains digitally understandable and editable with the aid of machine learning methods like Deep Learning. 

A video (from min. 31.15) of his speech is available online.
