During the DH2017 conference in Montreal, I attended the ‘Computer Vision in Digital Humanities‘ workshop organized by AVinDH SIG (Special Interest Group AudioVisual material in Digital Humanities). All information about the workshop can be found here.
An abstract about the workshop was published on DH2017 Proceedings and can be found here.
This workshop focus on how computer vision can be applied within the realm of Audiovisual Materials in Digital Humanities. The workshop included:
- A keynote by Lindsay King & Peter Leonard (Yale University) on “Processing Pixels: Towards Visual Culture Computation”.
- Paper presentations. (papers have been selected by a review commission)
- A hands-on session to experiment with open source Computer Vision tools.
- Lightning Talks allowing participants to share their ideas, projects or ongoing work in a short presentation of two minutes.
