On November 18, 2019, the CLARIAH Audiovisual Data and Media Studies work package (WP5) organized a one-day meeting on computer vision and audiovisual data at Utrecht University. The main organizers, Jasmijn Van Gorp, Christian Olesen and Tom Slootweg, invited several Dutch media scholars, as well as computer & data scientists, to explore the potential of computer vision for the analysis of audiovisual data held by cultural heritage intuitions (e.g. film, television, photography). The organizers furthermore invited two special guests, Taylor Arnold and Lauren Tilton (University of Richmond). Arnold and Tilton kindly agreed to participate in the expert meeting, before bringing the day to a close with an interesting public lecture on their Distant Viewing Lab.
