Lectures from Searching Through Seeing: Optimizing Computer Vision Technology for the Arts given on April 12 & 13, 2018.
This two-day symposium is an initiative to harness existing tools in computer vision science for art-historical research and advise their development. In recent years, computer vision technology has been adopted in many areas, yet, surprisingly, it has not reached its full potential for curators, dealers, artists, and academics who work with images on a daily basis. Experts in the fields of art history, curatorial practice, technology, and business will discuss how computer vision technologies can be currently used in the arts, as well as their potential for the future.
The Frick Art Reference Library would like to thank Artory LLC and the Hasso Plattner Institute for their sponsorship of this event.
