Digital visual media and metadata

Metadata and semantic information are crucial for most operations with data. Enriching images with words and words with images is more important than ever.

That’s why the focus of a starting event is on image-based research. This can be demonstrated particularly well by the research on cultural heritage, as important sources of great importance for our social and cultural identity. The change towards digital methods and tools is essential in this context in several ways since the form of capturing technology as well as the visualization of content changed greatly with the advent of the digital.

Istituto Svizzero will host a workshop closed to the public. It will be possible to follow online the keynotes. View full programme here.
