Traditional Music Composition with AI

Step 1: Define the Project Scope

1. Objective: Develop a tool to digitize historical texts using OCR, analyze the texts, and visualize historical trends.
2. Focus: Use OCR to convert scanned text images to digital text, perform basic text analysis, and create visualizations.
3. Tools: Tesseract OCR, Python, NLTK, Matplotlib or Seaborn for visualization.

Step 2: Set Up the Environment

1. Install Python: Ensure Python is installed on your system.
2. Set Up Virtual Environment: Create a virtual environment to manage dependencies.
Install Required Libraries: Install Tesseract OCR, NLTK, and other necessary libraries.

Step 3: Set Up Tesseract OCR

1. Install Tesseract: Install Tesseract on your system. Follow instructions for your OS here.
2. Configure Pytesseract: Point Pytesseract to your Tesseract installation

Step 4: Digitize Historical Texts with OCR

1. Load Image: Load a scanned image of a historical text.
2. Convert Image to Text: Use Tesseract OCR to extract text from the image.

Step 5: Preprocess the Text

Preprocess Input Images: Resize and preprocess the images to match the input requirements of the pre-trained model.

Step 6: Perform Text Analysis

1. Frequency Distribution: Analyze the frequency of words in the text.
2. Historical Trends: Analyze trends over time if you have multiple texts from different periods.

Step 7: Visualize the Data

1. Visualize Frequency Distribution: Use Matplotlib or Seaborn to visualize the frequency distribution.
2. Visualize Historical Trends: Create a line plot to show trends over time.

Step 8: Develop the Application Interface

Develop a Simple Interface: Use a web framework (e.g., Flask) to create a user-friendly interface for uploading images and displaying results.

Step 9: Test the Tool

1. Test with Sample Images: Use various historical text images to test the OCR and text analysis functionalities.
2. Collect Feedback: Gather feedback to improve the tool's accuracy and user experience.

Step 10: Deployment

1. Host the Tool: Deploy the web application on a cloud platform (e.g., AWS, Heroku).
2. Monitor and Update: Continuously monitor the tool's performance and update the models and interface as needed.
1. Host the App: Deploy the app on a cloud platform (e.g., AWS, Heroku).
2. Monitor and Update: Continuously monitor the app's performance and update the model and information database as needed.
