SIG – Engineering and Archaeology
Host department: Faculties of Education & Arts
Supervisor: Dr. Peter Cobb. (Faculties of Education and Arts)
We are forming a new interest group at the Innovation Wing, as a collaboration with humanities and educational researchers at HKU.
In this group, we plan to pursue several interdisciplinary projects that will improve the ways we can study and teach about the human past. Our projects will include uses of augmented and virtual reality in recording, teaching, and presenting archaeological sites. We are also studying the use of machine learning and computer vision for several purposes to study visual datasets such as satellite images of ancient landscapes. We work with a field project that travels to Armenia each summer to excavate. We welcome anyone who would like to join our team, from any Faculty. We especially invite engineers and computer scientists, but we also have many other projects which anyone with an interest can join.
Let’s learn about the human past together! Thank you!
