TSU historians will research medieval texts using AI
TSU historians will train artificial intelligence to analyze medieval documents in German by 2022. This will help them to find the necessary examples of changes in the meaning of terms in the text arrays. It is thought that such a digital archivist will find the necessary information in hours, while manually doing such work can take a lifetime.
- Many documents, texts of the 14-15th centuries in France, Germany, and England, have already been digitized, in particular, letters. AI will be able to analyze the formation of certain social practices based on big data. For example, to look at the texts that have survived, how people begin to use words with a strictly defined purpose, when an abstract, collective meaning appears, - said Anton Kotov, associate professor of the Department of the History of the Ancient World, the Middle Ages and the Methodology of History.
