Deciphering manuscripts from New France

Those with a passion for history and genealogy have always dreamed of being able to read with ease the vast quantities of hand-written documents from New France and its archives. Using artificial intelligence, new programs enable an almost error-free transcription of manuscripts relating to France's former colonies in North America.
Report by André Bernard for "Découverte", the Radio-Canada magazine programme.

Guests: André Bernard, journalist for Radio-Canada; Emmanuel Abbé, professor at EPFL, specialist in AI.

Presented by: Dominique Laresche.
