Nick Paustian will be speaking at the Digital Exhibitions Summit 2023:

Converging AI with personal tours in Art Museums

The Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art (QAGOMA) has embarked on an ambitious project: leveraging sophisticated AI mechanisms to make our digital content easily accessible on personal devices. Our technology, entirely built on open-source and freely available resources, employs computer vision to recognise artworks with high accuracy (>98%) and rapidity (averaging 200ms) across thousands of pieces. This negates the need for markers such as QR codes, label keys, or other intricate technological tools. In this talk, we invite attendees to engage in a discourse as we explore the potential of integrating AI to enhance the physical museum experience.
