Project Description

The SHASS Programs in Digital Humanities and DH Lab have an ongoing UROP program, with up to 25 positions open for UROPs interested in working at the intersection of the humanities and computing. This fall, we'll be working with Prof Catherine Clark to build a digital photography archive, combining traditional digital archives with techniques from computer vision and machine learning to enhance the archive with novel analyses. For more information about our Programs and our past projects, visit https://digitalhumanities.mit.edu, or check out our GitHub: https://github.com/dhmit! Our UROP project is fully remote.
