The RESCAPÉ project focuses on the manuscript, BNU L.ll.14, from the Library of Turin, which was damaged and partly destroyed by fire in 1904. The project employs handwritten text recognition technology for the transcription of part of the manuscript in order to train and fine-tune a transcription model to transcribe the manuscript automatically.

The PRAIRIE project uses Artificial Intelligence, specifically, the more advanced use of computer vision for artificial document restoration. The objective of the project is to create ‘fake manuscripts’ in order to restore the sections and pages that have been burnt, damaged, and in any way destroyed in the original manuscript.
