The Image Analysis for Archival Discovery (Aida) research team at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln will investigate the use of image analysis as a methodology for content identification, description, and information retrieval in digital libraries and other digitized collections. The project will focus on identifying poetic and advertising content in digitized historic newspapers. Using a machine learning approach, the project will result in an intelligent computational system that can process digital images and identify these specific types of content. The tools and methodologies produced will improve libraries' capacity to identify digital content at and below the item level, and increase access to information currently obscured in large digital collections.
