In the funded project titled Handwritten Archival Data Structuring with Regex Recognition (HANDS-RX) the focus lies on the automatic generation of datasets from colonial Civil Registry, but the goal is to make these techniques as widely applicable as possible.
HANDS-RX will kick off in autumn 2023 and the project duration is approximately 12 months. The Open Science Fund is worth 50.000€.
