What will you learn from this?

Dr Ben Kyneswood is in the Centre for Creative Economy at Coventry University, where his work is all about communities and archives. As part of his work memorialising the archive of Coventry City of Culture 2021, Ben selected Capture as the technology partner to help spearhead his various initiatives. Part of this work has involved incorporating crowd-sourced keywording and metadata for the vast amounts of found media that is centred around the city of Coventry, it’s communities and it’s history. In this presentation, Ben discusses the work of that project, whilst contrasting it against the backdrop of the recent explosion of AI, computer generated Metadata, and how that can contribute (or not) to archival collections.
