On 14 September 2021, the Adochs project organised an online study day on Image & Data Processing in the Cultural Heritage Sector. While morning presentations have shed light on the project results to improve the quality of the files produced in the context of heritage digitisation, those of the afternoon have opened the discussion on the possible follow-up of this project and the evolution of our organisations in the light of artificial intelligence.
