During the LYRASIS 3rd Annual Member Summit at the Nashville Public Library held on October 24, 2018, we met each of our 2018 Catalyst Fund recipients and heard about their innovative projects. We’ll post each presentation over the course of the next few days. Is this a project that might benefit your organization?

In this video, meet Harish Maringanti, Associate Dean of IT & Digital Library, and Dhanushka Samarakoon, Assistant Head of Software Development. Both are the project managers for the University of Utah’s Catalyst Funded project, “Machine Learning Meets Library Archives”. This project will develop and test a model for applying machine learning techniques to extract useful information from historical images to assist in and increase the efficiency of metadata creation for archives, libraries and museums of all types.
