Visitor Interaction and Machine Curation in the Virtual Liverpool Biennial: A Towards a National Collection Covid-19 Project

About the project

This project started from the observation that most machine learning and artifical intelligence systems are deployed in a GLAM (Galleries, Libraries, Archives & Museums) context as etiher search engines or as ways to automate cataloguing. The research team proposed to use machine learning in a more interactive setting. The project led to new data (in terms of how audiences interact differently with active human-machine co-curation systems), and new research directions for digital curation, digital exhibition design, and machine learning for visual art.

This was a partnership project between the Department of Computer Science, Durham University, the Liverpool School of Art & Design (Liverpool John Moores University) and the Liverpool Biennial.
