Exploring chapbooks in Scotland with machine vision
The National Library of Scotland contains collections of printed 'chapbooks' — small, cheap books sold by travelling pedlars, or chapmen.
Dr Giles Bergel, the Library's first Fellowship in Digital Scholarship, was appointed to study chapbook illustrations with the help of machine vision techniques, such as Visual AI. This talk will reveal what he's found out about the collections, and how machine vision can help others to understand printed heritage collections.
