Deep Discoveries – Visual Search for Heritage Collections. Please join us for a webinar showcasing our research findings, our methodologies and developments in computer vision and the interface design. We will introduce the aims of the project, followed by brief talks from our team on our UX research, computational developments, and the collaborative prototype design.
A recording of the session is available on YouTube: Visual Search for Heritage Collections.
Webinar on Computer Vision and Heritage: Opportunities for Research and Engagement. Join us for the first of two webinars organised by the AHRC Towards a National Collection foundation projects, Deep Discoveries and Visitor Interaction and Machine Curation in the Virtual Liverpool Biennial. This first session will offer an opportunity to hear three talks around computer vision search and engagement applications in heritage collections, followed by a Q&A and a brief virtual networking session. A second session, Computer Vision and Heritage: Where Next, will be announced soon!

UX research survey launched.
Help shape exciting new developments in the discoverability of cultural heritage collections by filling out this 3-5 minute survey for Deep Discoveries, our AHRC-funded foundation project in the Towards a National Collection Programme.Your participation will contribute to the design of a visual search prototype that enables cross-collection image discovery by exploiting advances in computer vision and deep learning methods, and allowing users to iteratively and interactively refine their search through visual facets (colour, pattern, shape) rather than keyword descriptions.
This anonymous, ongoing survey collects information about the search and discovery behaviours of users of online visual collections, especially heritage collections, and their engagement with existing visual search platforms.
