PhD Workshop | Beyond Search: Opening Up Audiovisual Content for Humanities Studies
September 25, 2023 - September 26, 2023
This event is part of the “Narratives From the Long Tail: Transforming Access to Audiovisual Archives” Event Series organised by the consortium of the Swiss National Science Foundation Sinergia Project, a week-long series of events taking place at EPFL, Switzerland from 25th – 29th of September, that focus on exploring the exciting intersection of machine learning, visual analytics, digital museology, and archival science.
(2 ECTS provided by EPFL, travel subsidy available)
In recent years, audiovisual content, with its growing accessibility, rich hidden meanings, and complexity in modality, became a new frontier for research in humanities and computational domains. The quest for properly and meaningfully opening up the variety of information (such as historical, social, affective, and aesthetic) available in the ever-increasing audiovisual materials requires a collective effort from both sides to co-create not only new methods but also new research questions.
This 2-day workshop, covering both the theoretical and practical aspects of processing and utilising audiovisual data, provides an entry point and a test field for researchers working on digital humanities, audiovisual content understanding, and HCI to formulate and validate new ideas.
