Smart technology and artificial intelligence are expanding into novel research and practical fields to create innovative solutions for society. Next in this evolutionary expansion is the heritage discipline, from which the convergence forms the unique Smart Heritage discourse. Smart Heritage is the convergence of autonomous and automatic technologies with the subjective processes associated with interpreting and valuing the past.
Smart Heritage presents the opportunity to weave the contextual influence of heritage with the decentralised, technology-led mantra of smart technology. Significantly, Smart Heritage advances beyond Digital Heritage as it breaks with the conceptual confines of Digital Heritage, which emphasises the passivity of technology, in favour of an active curatorial role for smart technology. This innovation may lead Smart Heritage to become the new academic vanguard at the intersection of technology and heritage.
This Special Issue provides a platform for examining, investigating, and proposing the convergence of smart technology and artificial intelligence with the heritage discipline. The issue welcomes contributors to explore this convergence in the areas of heritage, digital information technology and computing, museum studies, architecture, governance and policy, and urban planning. Contributors are encouraged to propose novel forms and discourses between smart technologies and heritage, and challenge existing rhetoric and limitations.
