Good news! Our project proposal “New Methods for Accessing Visual Open Research
Data in the Digital Humanities VORD” has been selected for funding by swissuniversities, under the program Open Research Data.
Starting September 2023, this project will seek to address a current urgent lack in digital art history and the digital humanities at large: exploring ways to introduce quantitative information about cultural heritage to enrich datasets with visual information derived from machine perception. Our objective is to automatically extract a set of diverse visual
features (i.e. anatomic key points from body postures, histograms, or image embeddings) at scale on large artistic and visual cultural heritage databases, with the aid of different stacks of ML models. We consider this approach useful, necessary, and complementary, but distinct from other strategies that are majoritarily present in the current DAH and digital heritage sectors.
