Project information

Project descriptions

Digitization of archaeology is in great demand. Since 2009, an HKU archaeological team of researchers and students led by Dr. Cobb has been investigating the area around Vedi, Armenia, aiming at understanding human life and mobility in the ancient landscapes of the Near East. A large volume of sherds was excavated and documented with photography. Inspired by the recent advancement in computer vision and machine learning, this project attempts to explore various deep learning models to classify and compare those sherds unearthed. It is hoped that insights gained from the project can help archaeologists of manage the massive quantity of ancient artifacts in the future.
