Intro to Image Processing with Museum Data
10:00 am | 10/27/2022 | On Zoom | Until 11:30 am | 10/27/2022
This workshop, led by Ana María Zapata Guzmán , will introduce participants to implementations of image processing in art history, especially the mechanics of computer vision as they relate to image collections. Since this workshop coincides with the opening of In Twilight: Ori Sherman’s Creation at the Magnes Collection of Jewish Art and Life, we will be using images from the show to explore what digital tools can tell us about pictorial data and representation. Attendees will learn the basics of computer vision and neural networks for art historical purposes. No prior technical experience is necessary.
