Searching Through Seeing: Optimizing Computer Vision Technology for the Arts
Thursday, April 12, 2018, 2:00–6:30 p.m. (reception to follow)
Presented by the Frick Art Reference Library
This symposium is an initiative to harness existing tools in computer vision science for art-historical research and help guide their future development. To this end, we are bringing together art historians, curators, computer scientists, software engineers, business leaders in the tech sector, and funders to identify the precise technological needs for expanding image-based searching as a tool and a methodology with the ultimate aim of building a usable image-search platform with multiple applications in the arts.
The symposium will be filmed and made available on The Frick Collection website. The Frick Art Reference Library would like to thank ARTORY LLC and the HASSO PLATTNER INSTITUTE for their sponsorship of this event.
