Thesis title:

Artificial Intelligence as a learning tool for identifying and categorising artworks from computational creative practice and historical computer generated metadata

My research will explore uses of artificial intelligence within curatorial practice, focussing on the collection held by the Computer Arts Archive in Leicester. Computer art presents a challenge to curators due to multiple media formats used in development, presentation and exhibition. My project will develop and evaluate a taxonomy for archival of both physical and digital artifacts and explore the use of AI tools to help curators interrogate archives to find new and meaningful connections between works.
