It is hardly an exaggeration to say that recent advances in machine learning have already demonstrably had an enormous impact on everyday life for billions of people across the world, generating febrile excitement both in the research community and amongst the general public. This technological progress coupled with the broader enthusiasm for the field have created an environment which is hungry for novel ideas and applications, including in realms previously not thought of as naturally linked with computer science.
One such domain concerns cultural heritage. Rather than alienating us from culture and the arts, machine learning and artificial intelligence provide an excellent opportunity to bring the former closer to the modern world, make them more exciting, and more readily understood and explored. This Special Issue aims at helping to facilitate exactly that.
We welcome high-quality submissions in any topic falling under the broad umbrella of cultural heritage, particularly encouraging those which describe work in novel application domains. Some of the domains of particular interest include numismatics, visual arts, musicology-related research, archeological object reconstruction and visualization, interactive tools, etc.
