LARGE-SCALE METADATA ENRICHMENT OF 3D CULTURAL HERITAGE ARTEFACTS BY AUTOMATIC AND USER-BASED METADATA ACQUISITION
Closing date: 17:00 on 15 January 2018
Interviews: Week commencing 29 January 2018
Project in brief
3D digital models of museum artefacts are a great way to document, manage, present and share heritage stored in museum collections. The latest 3D scanning technologies allow us to automate the creation of such models on a large scale. But large digitised collections need to be organised, using information about their origins, owners, purpose, shape, colour etc. This project will develop novel scalable methods to acquire metadata from 3D scans, such as shapes (a vase or a human statue), or components (an arm or a handle), and to identify links between these and other information such as text or images. Working in research labs in the UK and Germany, you will develop web-based 3D-centred annotation systems and contribute to international image and 3D model standardisation efforts.
David Arnold Memorial Scholarship – use-inspired basic research in Cultural Heritage
Closing date: 09:00 on 21 December 2017
Interviews: Week commencing 15 January 2018
Project in brief
The SEAHA David Arnold Memorial Scholarship is a fully-funded four-year combined MRes (at UCL) and PhD (at Brighton), on a topic of your choice within the general theme of “Use-inspired basic research in Cultural Heritage”. This call invites proposals of up to 1000 words for a specific PhD research project which addresses this theme. The heart of your proposal will be novel basic research in digital technology applied to cultural heritage, but this will arise out of interaction with cultural heritage stakeholders, addressing their needs and perspectives, and will be evaluated through practical deployment exercises with these stakeholders.
