Announcing the PA ArCHER Grant

As the digitization industry continues to grow and evolve, there is increasing interest in how the field of artificial intelligence and machine learning might influence our community. The potential for how we can utilize this technology is only limited by our ability to identify possible uses and dedicate time needed to train AI/ML models. Pixel Acuity and Digital Transitions have partnered with RIVER ai in order to announce the Pixel Acuity Artificial Intelligence in Cultural Heritage Exploratory Research Grant (PA ArCHER Grant for short). 

This grant is designed to further research in, and develop community understanding of, the state of machine learning, computer vision, natural language processing, and other forms of artificial intelligence as applied to the challenges and tasks of cultural heritage institutions in regards to the annotation, description, or other enrichment of their collections. 

You can download the formal call for proposals here.

We are looking forward to hearing about your ideas and we are excited about being able to select one for funding. Please refer to our full Grant Application document and consider joining us for a webinar reviewing the details of the grant and hosting Q&A drop-in sessions during the proposal creation phase.
