Digital Humanities (Cultural Heritage and Computer Science) - University of



This research group has a strong interdisciplinary character, being
comprised of researchers from two different areas in Universitat de
València: cultural heritage and computer science. 

We are open to collaboration with researchers interested in
interdisciplinary approaches to textile heritage, especially if this
involves the use of ICT and digital humanities, broadly considered. 

Our main common effort is SILKNOW, a 3-year research project funded within
the H2020 program, dealing with the application of various digital
technologies (artificial intelligence, semantic web, big data, ontologies,
3D printing, and advanced visualization tools) to European silk heritage
from the 15th to the 19th centuries. It applies next-generation computing
research to the needs of diverse users: museums, education, tourism,
creative industries, media
, thus preserving the tangible and intangible
heritage associated with silk. Based on records from existing catalogues, it
aims to produce digital modelling of weaving techniques, through automatic
visual recognition, as well as multilingual and semantically enriched access
to digital data. Needless to say, the project is fully based on open access
principles, tools, publications, etc.

While a doctoral degree would be desirable, candidates in the pre-doctoral
level can also apply for collaboration with us. Although most communication
within the project takes place in English, a working knowledge of Spanish is
greatly encouraged, too, but not mandatory.
