The earliest known copy of work by Archimedes. Sir Isaac Newton’s sketch of how a rainbow is formed. Gutenberg and other early Bibles and Muslim manuscripts. All these historical objects have been digitized by Michael B. Toth and his colleagues in humanities and science. Using powerful sensors and computers—and even a repurposed particle accelerator—and working with museums, universities, and private collectors, they mine everything from manuscripts to fossils to lacquerware panels for new information about their content and creation. Among the institutions that have asked for such advanced technical studies are the National Museum of Asian Art, national libraries, Princeton, and Stanford. Toth is the president of R.B. Toth Associates. In-Person Program General Information Registration for in-person tickets will end by 4 p.m. ET on Tuesday, May 2, 2023.
