Data quality for Numismatics based on Natural language processing and Neural Networks – D4N4
As part of the
"e-Research Technologies" funding programme, the DFG has approved the
project "Data Quality for Numismatics Based on Natural Language Processing
and Neural Networks - D4N4" initially for 18 months and, if the
initial results are convincing, with the option of a further one and a half
years, which now will start on 1 July 2021.
The aim is to implement research tools for numismatics
that are also suitable for other subjects that make use of images and/or
writing and are available in large quantities. This involves methods of a)
natural language processing (NLP) for multilingual and non-uniform coin
descriptions and their combination with a hierarchical iconographic thesaurus, as
well as b) image recognition of individual elements and overall compositions
using deep learning, a component of artificial intelligence (AI).
