Computerised Analysis of (Moving) Image Relations

Presentation by Tobias Ebbrecht-Hartmann at the online workshop “Audiovisual Digital Humanities”

How do images establish relations with other images, and how can we analyze these relations with the help of digital technology?

The presentations explores how far digital technology can assist in tracing and mapping the migration of historical images into popular culture. It describes such a process of image relations as a collaborative process between digital technology, human agency and digital objects that can include composition based automated similarity detection, a technique that would automatically identify related images and scenes from different filmic sources, the detection of image relations through advanced annotation, the algorithmic suggestion of relations based on automated analysis and annotated footage, and forms of digital curation through advanced digital storytelling. By focusing on curatorial methods and digital analysis tools developed in the context of the VHH project, the presentation discusses the use of computerized methods of image analysis for historiographic practices.
