ArchAIDE Revolution is Now!

The ArchAIDE Project, founded within the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme, is now at the end of the third year. This site contains all the information and documentation generated by the project including deliverables, published papers, blog post, interviews to key members of the team and much more .

From June 2016 to May 2019 the project produced many results among which:

  • A knowledge-base of pottery forms, decoration styles and stamps used as reference by the automatic pottery classification tools
  • Machine Learning algorithms for decoration and shape recognition from pottery sherds
  • A mobile app (iOS, Android) supporting archaeologists in their work on the field which integrates recognition tools and knowledge-base
  • A web site (ArchAIDE Desktop) providing the same services as the app to internet users and much more

All the tools are publicly available for evaluation and experimentation. In particular, you may find the mobile app on the official stores AppStore and GooglePlay.
The ArchAIDE Desktop may be reached from your browser following the link.
