ArchAIDE - Final Conference

Archaeorevolution is now

Participating. Downloading. Testing.



Auditorium Centro Congressi Le Benedettine

Piazza San Paolo a Ripa D'Arno, 16



We are glad to announce the final event of ArchAIDE project that will be hosted in Pisa, next 13-14 May 2019.

We invite the archaeological community to attend the event and discover the results of the project.

The ArchAIDE app will be shown and each participant will be able to download and test it.


The key aim of ArchAIDE project is to help archaeologists in their daily work. ArchAIDE app aims to change the global practice of archaeology by allowing a user to quickly obtain information, by photographing a sherd, applying autorecognition technology to that photograph, and matching the sherd to items in the catalogue
