Staatsarchiv Zürich (one of the READ partners) and the University of Zürich (part of the READ MOU network) are organising two events in Zürich.
Firstly, a Transkribus workshop will take place at the University of Zürich in October 2016. Due to high levels of interest, the workshop will be held twice – on 20 and 21 October. The Transkribus software, as well as other tools being developed by the READ project, will be presented. Participants will have the chance to work with their own documents and see what Transkribus is capable of regarding transcriptions and editions.
Second, on 10 November 2016, eight speakers will introduce tools used for digital scholarly editing to a public audience at the University of Zürich. A keynote speech will be delivered by Tobias Grüning from the University of Rostock who will explain how recurrent neural networks are being used in READ for Handwritten Text Recognition (HTR). There will also be talks about other digital editing tools and projects including ChartEX, histhub, corpus corporum, e-Manuscripta and TUSTEP.
Both events are open to all. More details can be found in the full programme. For more information and to register, please contact Tobias Hodel.
