Get Involved

At this point in the development, we are looking for skilled software programmers that wish to increase their coding portfolio. There are many different aspects of the existing software that need to be improved, and many more that need to be fully designed. If you’d like more information on how to get involved, contact Fabio Carrera at carrera@wpi.edu.

Additionally, we plan on making uScript an open-source software. Open-source is an approach to design, development, and distribution which offers practical accessibility to a product’s source (goods and knowledge). In the case of uScript, this translates to Open Source software which is created and modified by developers who are willing to add functionalities to the system and build up on the freely provided software code.

After releasing the initial version of the software with all the beta testing done in Venice, we plan to open this technology to the rest of the world. This move will ensure that this technology is continuously refined due to the immense availability of Open Source developers.

Once the software is up and running, we plan on using a number of methods that are dependent upon the work already done by historians and scholars. These methods are described in more detail on the following pages: Crowdsourcing, Intellectual Property Concerns, Collaborative Filtering, and Reputation Management.
