Machine vision on the collection
We have let an algorithm analyze similarities in our images and visualized the results on our webpages. Here you can view entire collections in one, "wander around the neighborhoods of the collections", or zoom in on details of individual works.
Where? Under individual works in the online collection you will find a link to explore similarities with other objects in the collection. The tools is so far available for paintings, prints, drawings and design objects.
Why? To ease the time consuming, Sisyphean work of publishing as much art historic catalog information as possible, we wanted to try out new methods of harvesting and disseminating collection data.
The application was developed by the National Museum and Bengler in the project Principal Components supported by Arts Council Norway.
