"Computer Vision for DH," a workshop with Giles Bergel
Wednesday, September 19, 10am – 12pm in Wilson 142
Workshop description: Computer vision has made rapid progress in recent years. Computers can now reliably match the same image, find differences in similar images, and classify content within multiple images. Recently (and controversially) computers have also begun to be routinely used to identify people and places. This hands-on session will demonstrate how to install and use state-of-the-art open source software from the University of Oxford’s Visual Geometry Group<http://www.robots.ox.ac.
Requirements: a relatively recent laptop (not a tablet or phone), ideally one capable of running Docker<https://www.docker.com> (please install in advance). Online demos will be provided for those unable to install software. Demonstration data will be provided, but participants are encouraged to bring along (1) pairs of images exhibiting small differences, such as variant printings, restruck coins or altered photographs and (2) collections of images containing identical features, such as multiple images of buildings, duplicate photographs, or other printed images.
