The ‘Newspaper & Press photo’ project has been nominated for the Computable Awards in the category best partner project.
With the possibilities of artificial intelligence (AI), press photos can be linked to specific newspaper articles. Using smart algorithms, we can use image recognition to link thousands of newspaper photos with the whole range of photos in press photo archives. This makes it easier to find out the full story of a single press photo. Sioux's mathware solutions play a key role in making this possible.
The project is a collaboration between KB (national library), Groninger Archives, Noord-Hollands Archive, Picturae and Sioux Technologies.
The Computable Awards are awarded to organizations, projects and individuals who have distinguished themselves in the past year with an ICT service. You can cast your vote for this project here.
