Visual image analysis is a relatively new tool on the digital frontier. While most programs that analyze data to date have been text-based, this session’s presenters will highlight significant developments in image-based analysis that will be invaluable to future art researchers as well as catalogers.
The Frick’s Photoarchive partnered with JQuery pioneer John Resig to apply his groundbreaking computer vision analysis software to their digitized image collection. Louisa Wood Ruby will discuss how this collaboratively developed toolkit for image analysis has already revolutionized the Frick’s cataloging practices and how it will be invaluable for the success of the newly formed International Digital Photoarchive.

Conrad Rudolph will talk about three University of California, Riverside scholars who launched a research project to test — for the first time — the use of facial recognition software to help identify unknown subjects of portrait art. This project may ultimately enrich the understanding of European political, social, and religious history.
Andrew Ellis will describe how the UK’s Your Paintings project is working with Oxford University’s Visual Geometry Group (Department of Engineering Science) on various projects including one that uses advanced image recognition software to tag the UK’s oil painting collection.
