Over the last 10 years, the field of computer vision, which seeks to gain a high-level understanding of images using computational techniques, has seen rapid innovation. This workshop will begin with an overview of how these methods have been applied to humanities research, including examples drawn from the Living with Machines project. The second half of the workshop will provide a hands-on overview of the process of creating an image classifier using deep learning-based computer vision methods.
