LIBER Forum for Digital Cultural Heritage

The LIBER Forum for Digital Cultural Heritage, co-chaired with CERL, organised a seminar on The State of the Art in Image Recognition, London, Senate House, LIBER 2015, 24 June 2015


9:00 Giuseppe Amato (ISTI-CNR)
Using image recognition for cultural heritage. The EAGLE project experience

  • In this talk the use of image recognition techniques in the EAGLE project was introduced. EAGLE (European network of Ancient Greek and Latin Epigraphy) is a CIP-Best Practice Network (partially) funded by the European Commission. The EAGLE comprehensive collection of inscriptions (about 80% of the surviving material) is accessible through a user-friendly portal, which supports searching and browsing of the epigraphic material. In order to increase the usefulness and visibility of its content, EAGLE has also developed a mobile application that enables tourists and scholars to obtain detailed information about the inscriptions they are looking at by simply pointing their smartphone camera at them. Image recognition techniques are used to identify the inscriptions seen through the smartphone and provide users with related information. The slides may be downloaded here, and there is a video of the demo.
