New Tech for Old Texts: How Deep Learning Deciphers Historical Documents

Deep learning researchers are hitting the books. By building AI tools to transcribe historical texts in antiquated scripts letter by letter, they’re creating an invaluable resource for researchers who study centuries-old documents. Many old documents have been digitized as scans or photographs of physical pages. But while obsolete scripts like Greek miniscule or German Fraktur Read article >
