This Monday (18.12.06) at 18:30, Haifa Linux Club will gather to hear Asaf Bartov talk about

        The Ben Yehuda Project

Project Ben-Yehuda aims to make accessible the classics of Hebrew literature (poetry and prose at first, and then essays etc.) to the reader of Hebrew. For that purpose, the literary works are converted to a format that is readable and searchable on the Internet. The project is intended to be of use for both amateurs and scholars of literature. It is inspired by the parallel English project started by Professor Michael S. Hart (which has recently started bringing texts in other languages as well) called Project Gutenberg.

The Lecture would cover the aims of the project as well as the techincal problems the Ben Yehuda have to deal with (e.g., lack of a free OCR in Hebrew that supports diacritics).

We meet in Taub building, room 3. For instructions see:

Attendance is free, and you are all invited!
