Workshop: Computer Vision in Book History

27 March 2019
The Hague, Koninklijke Bibliotheek, the National Library of the Netherlands

Computer vision is making rapid progress in its ability to extract information from documents. Libraries, academic digital humanists and publishers are now moving from experimenting with computer vision to considering how to implement it in their search platforms or research methods, or support it for their users. This one-day symposium will combine presentations on current research using computer vision with hands-on training in computer vision tools. It will both showcase the state-of-the-art in the field and discuss how it can be made more accessible to users of libraries and digital repositories.
