A professor from Institute of Mathematical Sciences (IMSc), Chennai, and an engineer have developed an app that will allow archaeologists and amateur history buffs alike to, say, capture images of seals on pottery and share it online via the app to assist experts devoted to the recognition and transcription of the script. It will also provide an approximate date by recognition of the iconography and its style... Satish Palaniappan, an SSN College of Engineering graduate who worked on the app talks to Kulasegaram Sanchayan about it.
