Guest Author: ReMasterpieces: A Machine Learning Powered Provenance Research Tool

ReMasterpieces is an academic research project created with two goals in mind: first, to recreate missing works of art using computer vision and machine learning and present the works to the original owners and second, to educate and empower people to find the actual missing works of art.

Last April, contributor Jana Fredricks attended the 2018 Museums and the Web conference in Vancouver.

Her paper, Digital Tools and How We Use Them: The Deconstruction and Reconstruction of Cultural Heritage in Syria, was presented in a panel entitled Post-Colonial Digital.
