Nachum Dershowitz : Algorithmic Paleography
The Cairo Genizah is a collection of hand-written documents containing approximately 350,000 items discovered in the late 19th century, spread out in some 75 libraries and private collections worldwide. Script style and handwriting can be used to identify fragments that might originate from the same original work. Such "joins" are currently identified manually by experts. We have been using vision and machine-learning tools to help in this task, as well as to classify manuscripts by style. We have begun applying these methods to other corpora, including the Dead Sea Scrolls and are also trying to match and piece together fragments based on their shape, in addition to the writing.
