Artificial Intelligence for Cultural Heritage

Editor(s): Luciana Bordoni, Francesco Mele, Antonio Sorgente
Contributors: Luca Pulina, Francesco Mele, Francesco Cutugno, Paul Mulholland, Jacopo Serafin;
Subject: Cultural Studies

Book Description

Artificial Intelligence and Cultural Heritage represent a combination that for several years has interested both scientific and cultural institutions regarding the potential of possible interactions and aggregations among the various players in these areas. This volume defines roles and provides connections where research and new technologies can suggest routes and competitive solutions that integrate tourism and culture with business and the market.

The volume is multidisciplinary, presenting and discussing a variety of new ideas, resulting from the integration of different scientific approaches. The papers brought together here deal with topics including the representation of cultural history, semantic digital archives, the use of analytic tools to support visitor interpretation, augmented reality, and robotics. As such, this book represents the detailed investigation of methodological and applicative aspects that the continued proliferation of computer applications in the cultural heritage field demands.
