AI & handwriting analysis of Dead Sea Scrolls

Another advantage of the AI-driven approach is that it makes it easier to figure out when a text was written, Popovic tells Haaretz. The Great Isaiah Scroll, for example, has been radiocarbon dated to the second century B.C.E. Using their algorithms, the researchers can now identify other manuscripts from the same period by matching the writing styles, without need to sacrifice precious ancient parchment to carbon dating, he says.
