AI4CH 2022 @ AI*IA 2022
Welcome to the web site of AI4CH , the 1st Workshop on Artificial Intelligence for Cultural Heritage, which will be held in conjunction with the 21st International Conference of the Italian Association for Artificial Intelligence (AIxIA 2022), which will take place at University of Udine (Italy) from 28 november to 2 december 2022.
The AI*IA Steering Board has recently approved the establishment of a Working Group on “Artificial Intelligence for Cultural Heritage”. This workshop will represent the first opportunity to gather interested researchers and practitioners, and to form the initial core of the working group. It is intended to become the yearly event in which the group members will meet to exchange ideas, foster cooperation, and get in touch with the other stakeholders.
There is a growing need for advanced technological solution for preservation, restoration, valorisation and fruition of Cultural Heritage. In facts, AI has traditionally provided successful solutions to CH practices, and is likely to contribute even more in the future, taking on an increasingly relevant role. On the other hand, CH challenges in the digital era may provide relevant application domains and tasks to AI research.
The AI*IA workshop of Artificial Intelligence for Cultural Heritage (IAICH22) aims at bringing together researchers, policy makers, professionals and practitioners to explore the main issues concerning the application of Artificial Intelligence to cultural heritage.
In particular, this first workshop aims at fostering interdisciplinary and multi-disciplinary research on tangible and intangible Cultural Heritage, promoting the use of Artificial Intelligence models, methodologies and tools for the study, research, preservation and dissemination of CH content.
At the same time, the workshop will encourage discussion on the ethical aspects and sustainability issues involved in the management, delivery and conservation of cultural heritage, with a specific focus on the involvement of all kinds of stakeholders, so as to represent the different perspectives and communities involved in CH practices.
The workshop will also put an emphasis on the exchange of experiences and transfer of good practices within the vast and varied community revolving around Cultural Heritage computing and Artificial Intelligence, with the goal of extending at the national and international level the results achieved by projects, case studies, applications. An effort will be made to create synergies with other relevant events in the field, such as TPDL (Theory and Practice of Digital Libraries), IRCDL (Italian Research Conference on Digital Libraries).
