From October 7 to 8, the eHumanities working group of the Union of German Academies of Sciences and Humanities, in cooperation with the Göttingen Academy of Sciences and Humanities, is organizing the workshop FAIR & Co: Visibility and Availability of Digital Academy Research in a Networked Scientific Landscape. The OCR-D project will be represented with a lecture on the topic Digital Transformation: OCR-D, Offer and Vision by Matthias Boenig (BBAW). Using the example of the German Text Archive, it will be shown how the application spectrum of this reference corpus can be extended by the area of machine learning to improve character and structure recognition.
