Collective residencies / Archives and Artificial Intelligence / Olot


From Monday, 24 April 2023 to Friday, 28 April 2023

Historian, Paleographer and Archivist


Public servant of the National Archives of Brazil, where he is currently part of the Paleographic Transcription Team of the Coordination of Written Documents. Graduated in History, with a master's and PhD in Social History, with an emphasis on the written culture at Middle Ages. He completed a sandwich doctorate at the University of Seville. In 2011, was one of the Iberoamerican professionals selected by the Spanish government to participate in the 'Gestión de fondos documentales privados' stay, held in Toledo, in the Sección Nobleza del Archivo Histórico Nacional of Spain. He is now finishing his graduation in Archival Sciences.


During the residency I will present with my colleagues a project about the application of platforms to transcribe and describe handwritten archival collections and funds in an automated way. The project has the general objective of promoting dialogue between digital paleography and archives, through the application of artificial intelligence in paleographic reading activities. There are studies at Brazilian National Archives to adopt this kind of software/platform for the recognition of certain writings in Portuguese, allowing the automated transcription of these documents. We will also try to see how these platforms are used in European and, specifically, Spanish archives to compare methodologies. Finally, we will try to exchange ideas and experiences with the other residents at Olot.
