Enriching metadata with better tags and descriptions makes it easier for anyone to search and find quicker and more easily. Recent advances in IT and artificial intelligence (AI) offer remarkable opportunities for the automatic enrichment of cultural heritage metadata with minimal resources. Involving humans in this work nevertheless remains important. This interesting topic came to us from Europeana Pro in their article, “Combining AI tools with human validation to enrich cultural heritage metadata.”
