ArchAIDE Discussion Workshop York


As the ArchAIDE project enters its second year, we would like to invite feedback from the research community on the direction of the project, and the development of the ArchAIDE app. Please join us in York for this discussion workshop, which will introduce the ArchAIDE project, and the prototype workflow for the ArchAIDE app, along with underlying topics and technologies for the classification of pottery in archaeology.

ArchAIDE is funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme and aims to create a new system for the automatic recognition of archaeological pottery from excavations around the world. It started on June 2016 and will end on May 2019.

The ArchAIDE project will develop a new app that aims to change the global practice of archaeology, thanks to the latest automatic image recognition technology.

Pottery is of fundamental importance for the comprehension and dating of archaeological contexts, and for understanding the dynamics of production, trade flows, and social interactions.

Today, this characterisation and classification of ceramics is carried out manually, through the expertise of specialists and the use of analogue catalogues held in archives and libraries.

The goal of ArchAIDE is to optimise and economise this process, making information more accessible wherever archaeologists are working.
