Digital approaches to the capture and analysis of watermarks using the manuscripts of Isaac Newton as a test case

A research project on identifying and analyzing watermarks in digitized collections using watermarks found in Isaac Newton’s manuscripts as a case study. The UK partner, the University of Cambridge is requesting £199,929 from the Arts and Humanities Research Council.

This project combines the expertise of the British National Archives, King's College Cambridge, the Cambridge University Library, the École Nationale des Chartes (Sorbonne), the Huntington Library, the Science History Institute, Peterhouse College Cambridge, and Indiana University in an innovative attempt to devise new methods of digital watermark capture and analysis by means of machine learning, using Isaac Newton's extensive manuscript corpus as a test platform.
