Technologies for Studying the Human Past
We will undertake two major projects in our SIG. The dual goals are to apply both eXtended Reality (XR) and Machine Learning (ML) to studying the human past with archaeology through an exploration of digital humanities potentialities. We will use XR to collect data and to present these data for education and public engagement to teach everyone about the past through archaeology and archaeological fieldwork. We will use ML to improve our ability to find and study ancient sites of the past.
