The interlinking of cultural heritage data, the use of structured data as well as crowdsourcing and machine learning are becoming more and more institutionalised in the international GLAM community. This is why the focus of the 2020 and 2021 editions lies on linked open data, machine learning, human-computer-interaction and crowdsourcing.

Introduction and Warm-up Session

Wednesday, 3 March 2021, 17:00 - 18:00
During this session we will provide an introduction to the hackathon for newcomers. Some datasets will be presented and we will have the chance to brainstorm first project ideas together.
