Stanford University professor Dan Edelstein and the ARTFL project of the University of Chicago propose to bring the power of machine-assisted learning and text-mining techniques to bear on the difficult question of the Encyclopedie's relationship to past thinkers. Data-mining techniques will allow us to focus on all forms of citation, allusion, borrowing, and outright plagiarism in the Encyclopedie, through which we hope to reach a more thorough and quantified understanding of the status and state of knowledge in the Age of Enlightenment while at the same time reflecting on the use and development of data-mining techniques in the Humanities.
