Currently, computer algebra systems have different interfaces and notations to input math expressions, sometimes preventing their easy use. There is no doubt that a handwriting interface for math should be one of the most intuitive and easy methods to work with computer algebra systems. In the lecture, the author describes the difficulty of handwritten math recognition and presents his idea to overcome them. There will be a demonstration of handwriting interface connected to a computer algebra system as well.
