AI & TC?

Melissa Terras has written a book which deals with the application of artificial intelligence to the problem of deciphering ancient written texts (Vindolanda texts to be specific, but it has potential applicability to NT manuscripts as well):
Image to Interpretation: An Intelligent System to Aid Historians in Reading the Vindolanda Texts (Oxford Studies in Ancient Documents; Oxford: OUP, 2006)

From Blurb: "This book details the development of what appears to be the first system constructed to aid experts in the process of reading an ancient document, exploring the extent to which techniques from Artificial Intelligence can be used to develop a system that could aid historians in reading the stylus texts."
