    OVERVIEW

    This course will analyze solutions that Artificial Intelligence and other innovative technologies have produced for the protection, use and enhancement of cultural heritage. We also want to stimulate new methodological and technological solutions to allow catalysing possible interactions and aggregations between the various subjects involved in developing new applications in the cultural heritage sector.

    AIMS AND CONTENT

    LEARNING OUTCOMES

    The aim of the course is to analyze solutions that Artificial Intelligence and other innovative technologies have produced for the protection, use and enhancement of cultural heritage. We also want to stimulate new methodological and technological solutions to allow catalysing possible interactions and aggregations between the various subjects involved in developing new applications in the cultural heritage sector. Reproducing cultural sites and making them usable in a different way, including through the web, means opening up new development opportunities for the civil and economic growth of the territories. Hence the need to define roles and connections, where only research and new technologies can suggest competitive paths and solutions that integrate tourism and culture on the one hand, with business and the market on the other.

    PREREQUISITES

    Basic knowledge of functional and object-oriented programming.

    TEACHING METHODS

    The course is organized according to two distinct categories of activities:

    • Theoretical Lecture (Lecture - Lecture): a teaching activity in which the student is predominantly "passive," i.e., attends a theoretical or practical-application lecture in the classroom, or through the tools provided by the teaching portal.
    • Practical Lesson (Hands-on experience - Study session): component of "assisted teaching" in which the student is predominantly "active," i.e., performs in first person, guided activities in the laboratory. 

    Class attendance, materials used and exercises are all indispensable for proper preparation for this discipline. Therefore, it is advisable to attend lectures and tutorials, to carefully read and scrupulously follow the directions provided in the materials made available online on the teaching portal. 

    The laboratory will be taught by the teaching docene, assisted by laboratory tutors. The laboratory activities will be held at the Computer Science Laboratory on the Savona Campus, and students will be divided into groups according to the capacity of the laboratory. Students will be required to make a reservation for the lab activity through the course portal. Only those who have made the reservation will have access to the lab activities. The organization and dates of the laboratory activities will be communicated directly by the lecturer at the beginning of the lectures and sdaranno available on the course portal.

    The teaching organization scheme results in 6 CFUs for a total of 150 hours of study-work.
