Being Human Festival: Artificial Intelligence and Roman Pottery


Being Human Festival: Artificial Intelligence and Roman Pottery

The Arch-I-Scan Project is an interdisciplinary research project based at the University of Leicester which is developing a state of the art image-recognition and machine-learning service to identify Roman pottery remains.

As part of the UK's Being Human festival, we are exploring 'Artificial Intelligence and Roman Pottery' through a free, hands-on activity which is suitable for children and adults alike.

During this event, attendees will work with the Arch-I-Scan Project research team to experience how cutting-edge technology can be used to shed new light on eating and drinking in the Roman world. Participants will be supervised by project members in using their own mobile phones to record Roman pottery fragments, and will learn about how Arch-I-Scan is using artificial intelligence to identify Roman pots and sherds.
