Photohistory questionnaire for PhD thesis

Hello everyone,My name is David Croft and I am currently working on my PhD at De Montfort University.For my thesis I am trying to use various artificial intelligence techniques to identify when the same picture is appearing in different collections. Basically just trying to identify co-referent records so that information which is missing from one record can be used to fill out gaps in the other. There are other possible applications but that's the focus right now.The hope is that using AI…See More

Photographic process misidentification rates in professional collections.

Hi all,For my research I need to be able to compare the different processes used between pairs of records and  to identify the similarity of the processes mentioned in each record. However, part of the challenge in doing this is that the process listed in the metadata is not always correct. For example, tin types listed as dagarotypes. Is anyone aware of any research, or even better any figures, on the rates of process misidentification in collections?ThanksDavidSee More

Hello everyone,My name is David Croft and I am currently working on my PhD at De Montfort University.For my thesis I am looking at a new way of searching digitised museum collections for multiple appearances by the same item.I am trying to use a technique called Fuzzy Clustering, the basic idea is to improve matching by loosely comparing the entirety of the records.However, my background is entirely in the computer sciences and not the humanities/photography. How I search for records is likely…See More
