Lab Meeting with The Intelligent Retrieval Network Database of Chinese Characters team

An online meeting with The Intelligent Retrieval Network Database of Chinese Characters was held on December 13, 2021. The IRNDCC database was built by the Center for the Study and Application of Chinese Characters (CSACC) of East China Normal University (ECNU) in Shanghai. It is a comprehensive database of ancient Chinese texts and scripts. The center also hosts the Journal of Chinese Writing Systems (JCWS). The primary purpose of the meeting was to check whether the system of the Chinese database is compatible with the iClassifier platform.

In the meeting, both teams conducted a brief presentation of the data structure of each project. In addition, the teams presented the character recognition technology in the Chinese database and the classifier-based networks in iClassifier. The fruitful discussion was a good start for further cooperation. After the meeting, some sample data were shared to test a collaboration. Both teams agree to continue to maintain close communication.


iClassifier数据库与中国文字智能检索网络数据库对谈会

2021年12月13日,由以色列希伯来大学考古与古代近东语言及文明研究所Archaeomind Lab开发的iClassifier数据库团队与由中国华东师范大学中国文字研究与应用中心开发的中国文字智能检索网络数据库团队进行了网上对谈会。此次会议的主要目的是寻找两个数据库进行合作的契机。

会上双方团队首先介绍了各自项目的数据库结构。其次,中国文字智能检索网络数据库团队展示了智能文字识别技术,iClassifier数据库团队展示了汉字以及古埃及文字的类符网络。此次会议,双方都收到了正面反馈,会后还共享了数据样本,以进一步确定实现合作的可能性。这次会议是一个良好的开端,两支团队将继续保持密切的沟通,以期增进交流,实现共同协作。
