Subject: Videos: Machine Vision, Decentralized Future, & Libraries & Research Info
Date: Thu, 14 Jun 2018 17:41:30 -0400
New videos are available from CNI’s spring 2018 membership meeting:

In Practical, Incremental Approach to a Decentralized Future, Jeffrey Spies, formerly of the Center for Open Science, explores several decentralized and distributed technologies and protocols that are being discussed as mechanisms by which to reconfigure scholarship (e.g., BitTorrent, blockchains, dat).
A team from McMaster University discusses the Library’s implementation of VIVO software to represent the University’s faculty members and their scholarship in an open and semantic web-enabled format. Turning Threads into Cloth: The Library’s Role in Unifying, Enhancing, and Disseminating Research Information describes how, through this work, the Library has established itself as a campus leader and authority in research information and identity management and has strengthened its relationships with groups across the institution.

Neural Networks: Machine Vision for the Visual Archive, by Peter Leonard of Yale University, examines how artificial neural networks, or “machine vision” techniques can be used to analyze and organize large visual collections with tens of thousands of images.
