Millions for HAICu project: research on heritage

HAICu: digital Humanities - Artificial Intelligence - Cultural heritage
11 July 2023
Prof. Dr. L.R.B. Schomaker

Various UG researchers are involved in projects that were awarded funding in the context of the Dutch National Research Agenda. UG Professor Lambert Schomaker is the coordinator of the HAICu project, which has been awarded a grant of €10.3 million.

The HAICu project brings together AI and Digital Humanities researchers, heritage professionals, and interested citizens who work together to achieve scientific breakthroughs in order to open up, link, and analyse large-scale digital heritage collections. The exceptional challenges raised by cultural heritage offer a unique opportunity to broaden the horizons of AI. Future technologies must be easy to use outside the laboratory, learn from as few examples as possible, and continuously learn from the users. These technologies must take into account the societal demand for responsible and explainable methods for creating multimodal narratives around our cultural heritage that reach further than the current large-scale language models.

Find here the news article on all awarded projects by UG-reserachers.

On the NWO website there is a complete list of NWA-ORC-projects that where awarded funding.
