CDH Basics | Computer Vision: A Critical Introduction

25 May 2021, 10:00 - 11:00


Machine vision systems can potentially help humanities researchers see historical and cultural image collections differently, and could provide tools to answer new research questions. This CDH Basics session provides an introductory overview of basic tasks in machine vision, such as Image Classification, Object Detection and Image Captioning within a critical framework highlighting the challenges of algorithmic bias and the limits of automation as a method for humanistic enquiry.


Target audience

CDH Basics sessions are open to staff and graduate students at the University of Cambridge who want to learn and apply digital methods and use digital tools in their research.
