Why a Datalab?

We love our data!

The Datalab welcomes you to explore the digital museum in a new way!

Here you can explore museum collections in a variety of ways using artificial intelligence techniques.

You can access datasets from Badisches Landesmuseum Karlsruhe and Allard Pierson Amsterdam and use them for your own research and projects.

The Datalab is a temporary research and development space for practice-based research, improving collection data and experimenting with machine learning techniques.

In times of rapid change through artificial intelligence, we felt it would be useful to create an experimental space, invite creative technologists and find ways to improve the accessibility and quality of the collection data.

The Datalab was initiated as part of the Creative User Empowerment project (2021–2023) which supported the development of xCurator and aimed to open up a digital innovation and communication space.

If you have any suggestions or ideas, please contact the Datalab team (Etienne Posthumus, Sonja Thiel)
