Current Metadata Issues
Date: 25 May 2017
Time: 10am to 5pm
Location: Learning on Screen, 77 Wells Street, London, W1T 3QJ
Presented by Tim O’Riordan
Current Metadata Issues aims to introduce key concepts around emerging digital technologies for documenting audiovisual collections. While much cataloguing work is based on long established principles of standardisation and interoperability, the documentation of collections can also involve cutting-edge and data-intensive technologies such as machine learning and computer vision. Acknowledging that no one day course could comprehensively cover these topics in detail, we instead aim to give a flavour of what’s technically possible, what may soon be possible and what the practical implications might be for collection managers.
We encourage attendees from underrepresented groups particularly those from BAME (Black, Asian or Minority Ethnic) backgrounds or those with a disability. We also particularly encourage attendees from right across the UK.
