Human Errors in the Preparation of Input for Computers

  • S. J. Roberto Busa


We have already put onto punched cards, for electronic elaboration, natural texts containing 12,000,000 words in 9 different languages in the Latin, Hebrew, Greek, and Cyrillic alphabets, which deal with different, subjects, periods, and cultures, such as the Qumran manuscripts, the works of St Thomas Aquinas, and abstracts of nuclear physics. It is of the utmost importance for us to rid the entries of human errors. This is also the case with other centres that plan to automate the preparation of an index to establish an historical dictionary.
