Mari Wigham is a software developer at the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision, working on innovative ways of helping scientific researchers to work with the archive. She studied electronic engineering, and has spent her career working in applied research institutes, on projects ranging from virtual avatars to make television accessible to deaf people, to personalised food advice for helping people make healthier choices. Her current work at Sound and Vision and CLARIAH combines her experience in the media with her knowledge of semantic technology, to unlock media archives for researchers and provide them with new insights from the data.

For CLARIAH WP5 I am part of the team that sets up the audiovisual infrastructure at NISV. With a background in artificial intelligence and speech technology I’m focusing on automatic processing of audiovisual data and making it better accessible within a robust infrastructure. For NISV I am also participating within NDE in the workgroup Architecture, aiming to make digital heritage better interoperable and accessible for users.
