Description or Abstract

Recent efforts to digitize Geniza documents have made them more easily accessible than ever before. Furthermore, new algorithms from the field of computer visualization have made it possible to match fragmentary parts of the same document. This lecture will demonstrate the potential new technologies have in helping to piece together lost medieval Arabic archives, as well as the risks inherent in the algorithms.
