eScriptorium recognised in prestigious DataX grant from Princeton University
The Princeton Geniza Project (HTR4PGP) has been awarded funding from Princeton University’s Schmidt DataX Fund to apply the kraken and eScriptorium to the Cairo Geniza, an important collection of medieval manuscripts written in Hebrew. The project will be led by Prof. Marina Rustow, in collaboration with Prof. Daniel Stökl Ben Ezra and the eScriptorium team at the EPHE. The fund is supported through a major gift from the Schmidt Futures Foundation, and provides grants to explore using artificial intelligence and machine learning to accelerate discovery.
