Structuring Time-Series Historical Sources by Human-Machine Specialization: Toward the Construction of Edo Information Platform Referring to “Bukan”

This paper proposes a new workflow for structuring large-scale data, such as Pre-modern Japanese text “Bukan.” First, we define “Bukan” as a new type of historical sources called “time-series sources” that changes continuously over time, and interpret many versions associated with “Bukan” from the viewpoint of software engineering and make a mapping of those versions to the concepts of bibliography of Japanese old printed books. We then compare text-based and image-based approaches to the detection of difference, and propose a new concept “differential reading” that combines both the detection of difference, and differential transcription, to realize a workflow based on human-machine specialization, which is a key toward structuring “Bukan” The first preliminary result was released as “Bukan Complete Collection” on November 2017.
