Ben Zweig, Digital Projects Coordinator at the National Gallery, DC recently tweeted that 22,000 high resolution CCO images from the print collection of the National Gallery have been uploaded to Wikimedia Commons. A great resource.
Amazing conversations and work have come out of The Museums and Artificial Intelligence Network New York Conference and it is best summed up by Mia Ridge here. It was centered on two themes: AI and visitor data and AI and collections data. At the conference the Cooper Hewitt launched their Interaction Lab where they are “reimagining the museum experience for the 21st Century.” If you are interested in collections analysis check out Identifying Art Through Machine Learning which is a project between MoMA and Google Arts and Culture Lab.
An international forum on the art catalogue: Reloading catalogs. If anything from this is posted online we will post a link here.
