Project details

Short description

The project deals with an important aspect of art, archeology and cultural heritage: iconography and narrative 
imagery. After using Computer Vision to largely recognize objects and styles, the next challenging step is to understand the semantic level of the images. The goal is the interaction between scientists and machine, not only in the form of applied science, but as a transdisciplinary exchange of methods and image theories.
