PhD position in Artificial Intelligence for Cultural Heritage

  • Location: Groningen
  • Institution: University of Groningen, Faculty of Science and Engineering
  • Function type: PhD position
  • Closing date: 27 June 2024
We are looking for a highly motivated and qualified PhD student/researcher who will work towards developing new (machine learning and deep learning-based) algorithms and procedures that exploit human labelling and machine-based clustering efficiently. Human labelling (from Dutch cultural heritage partners) will address not only text but also other multimodal attributes of scanned text images (layout, graphics). The ultimate goal is to realize AI systems with a deep understanding of what a document is about.

 

Within the dynamic HAICu team, the PhD researcher will participate in Work Package 2, titled Continual Machine Learning and Humans in the Loop. In this Work Package, we will collaborate with digital humanities researchers from the University of Twente and partners from Dutch cultural heritage institutions, such as the Nationaal Archief, Collectie Overijssel, and Groninger Archieven.
