The aim of this session is to present recent advances in Artificial Intelligence (AI) techniques for data analysis and representation cultural heritage measurements.
Any "real world" digitization goes through some kind of measures: digitization of ancient documents, laser scans of monuments, ground penetrating radar, radiocarbon dating, etc. The useful information contained in the measurements is not easy to exploit and some kind of analysis is needed. On the other hand, generating from measures a digital representation of real objects requires for some kind of manipulation.
Recent machine learning and pattern recognition algorithms give the opportunity to analyze and manipulate the acquired data in order to better exploit the contained information and generate the best digital representation.
In this session, all the contributions that improve these analyses and representation through AI techniques are welcome
- Ancient document analysis
- Digital artifact capture, representation and manipulation
- Automatic annotation of tangible and intangible heritage
- Interactive software tools for cultural heritage applications
- Multimedia music classification and reconstruction
- Augmented and Virtual Reality applications
- Image processing, classification and retrieval
- Semantic segmentation
- Serious Game for Cultural Heritage
- Robotic applications
- Ontology reconstruction for historical research document
