IN-SPIRE™ Visual Document Analysis

FAQ: What are the hardware requirements?

IN-SPIRE™ was developed to operate on mid-level Windows workstations and Servers. IN-SPIRE is currently running at client sites with Windows 7 and Windows 10. A typical IN-SPIRE computer would include a 2.5 Ghz processor, 8 Gb of memory, and 200 Gb disk drive. About 20-50 Gb should be available to store the program and associated datasets. IN-SPIRE will operate on much less powerful configurations, but dataset size may be limited. There are no special graphics card requirements as with earlier versions of SPIRE.
