Séance du séminaire DHAI, présentée par Daniel Foliard, Soumik Mallick, Julien Schuh, Marina Giardinetti, et Mohamed Salim Aissi

The presentation will provide an overview of a project that aims at aggregating a thematic collection focusing on early conflict photography (1890-1918). The EyCon research project is experimenting with AI techniques to augment historical enquiry and data enrichment of a large visual corpus of historical photographs. It will add automatically enriched metadata to its online database and publish a prototype for the inclusion of AI functionalities into similar repositories. The team also reflects on the ethics of showing and facilitating access to a potentially contested material. The presentation will discuss the project's perimeter, its data architecture and provide case studies of how AI can be applied to late 19th c./early 20th c. photographs.
