Data Through the Eons

Data Through the Eons

While hieroglyphs have been translated, and information from the early Egyptian civilization is available, we risk losing digital information from recent years. Professor Mads Nygård and professor Kjetil Nørvåg aim to preserve the digital realm for the eons to come.

Read about the LongRec research project  and professor Mads Nygård and professor Kjetil Nørvåg in the new issue of Gemini (in Norwegian).

LongRec is a research project on persistent, reliable and trustworthy long-term archival of digital documents, with emphasis on availability and use of documents. The particular problems addressed by LongRec typically emerge when document lifetime exceeds 20 years, and LongRec imposes no upper limit on the lifetime.
