I am married and have one daughter and live in Vriezenveen, a city in the Netherlands. I am in training for minister.
During a physics lesson, back in 1989, an older PhD said the following:
“Your generation does not necessarily have to know much, but… when you do not have the answer, you do need to know where and how to find it.”
Looking back these turned out to be prophetic words, because now ‘Google is your best friend’. It’s all about reflecting on the right keyword or combinations of keywords to find ‘the gateway’ to a deeper insight. Its all about the ins and outs.
My hobby, digitizing old works got a bit out of hand. Making documents ‘readable’ and ‘searchable’ gives me a lot of perspective in history and it creates a little overview in the chaotic world we live in.
The questions I have…
How can I manage to process the damaged text with the image filters for a OCR-recognition of 100%?
How can I refine my search-actions, with logic, with fast indexing, including word frequencies, with associative searching, with spelling varieties, with words out a thesaurus / treasuries, with equivalents in other languages?
If you don’t have dreams, you aren’t really living!
