Fulfilling the public mandate through a public-private partnership
Since 2003 our company’s purpose has been to preserve the past for the future. We believe that history provides context and understanding to our current world; it helps us avoid making the same mistakes, to learn from our journey and better understand our own humanity and who we are today.
For this reason we recognize the importance of “digital conservation”, meaning digitization and distribution, of archival resources. We focus on precision and reliability, while keeping in mind the fragility and uniqueness of each document and collection.
At Qidenus we know how much the distribution and accessibility of information impacts the advancement of knowledge and innovation. That’s why we aim to unlock the wisdom that lies within handwritten documents.
We have developed a groundbreaking Handwritten Text Recognition that makes historical handwritten documents searchable. We believe that this technology will ultimately strengthen the position of archives by connecting them and allowing their content to be accessed by users around the globe.
