AI for Heritage & Research
Deze sessie liet zien hoe AI wordt gebruikt in onderzoek en erfgoed aan de hand van voorbeelden uit de praktijk. Onderwerpen waren: AI en eigen productieproces om collecties slimmer & anders te ontsluiten, AI ten behoeve van diversiteit en inclusie & toegepaste AI ten behoeve van publiekservaring.

LegaSea: exploring natural history heritage of the beach using AI and Citizen Science
In this talk an introduction will be given about the research on natural history heritage found on Dutch beaches: ice age fossils. What do these remains tell us about the history of life in the Netherlands? How did animals respond to climate change and the arrival of humans? Isaak talked about how AI models and the expertise of citizen scientists can help answer these ancient questions.
Bias in Metadata
The SociAl BIas Observatory (SABIO) project is aimed at investigating bias in the digital collections of the members of the Dutch Digital Heritage Network. In this project, we investigate how collection managers and curators create and add metadata to collection objects, and how bias in these metadata can be detected using statistical models. We aim to create a knowledge graph on top of existing collection databases that makes prejudices and imbalances in the data explicit such that they can be addressed, as well as taken into account by users of the data.
Utrecht Time Machine: what 1 night of working with data yields with help from AI
Rick Companje, Shannon Muiden & Kathleen Verdult
Over the centuries, Utrecht's Dom Tower has been captured by lots of people. Wouldn't it be nice if everyone could put together their own personalized Dom Tower? To this end, we have created an interactive 3D visualization tool based on linked open data. For this, anyone can draw from hundreds of annotated images of Utrecht's Dom Tower, drawn from a large number of heritage collections worldwide. So you can mix a 17th-century Domtoren in watercolor with pen drawings and advertising leaflets from the 20th century, resulting in a unique Domtoren on screen - and one that can also be printed out as a paper folding model.
