Abstract

As the leader of the SAT Buddhist Scripture Database, Professor Shimoda has been dedicated to building a text dataset for East Asian Buddhist scriptures. This project has significantly contributed to integrating internationally recognised standards crucial for humanities research, such as Unicode, the Text Encoding Initiative (TEI), and the International Image Interoperability Framework (IIIF), into Japanese Digital Humanities. Recent efforts have expanded the database to include AI based on machine learning. In this presentation, Professor Shimoda and the technical lead, Dr Nagasaki, will introduce the project’s history, current state, and future.
