8. ARTISTE: Image Retrieval System Puts European Galleries in the

Still under development, Artiste's image retrieval system seeks to cross
link, integrate, and render more searchable the vast holdings of four of
Europe's grandest museums: London's National Gallery, London's Victoria
Albert Museum, Paris's Louvre, and Florence's Uffizi Gallery. A massive
endeavor, the project relies on metadata and sophisticated content
of 2 and 3D collections to build a linked database now containing more
60,000 separate images. Artiste's presentation of its work and progress
both detailed and well illustrated, carefully walking visitors through
process designed to yield new ways of studying art and identifying the
complex interrelationships between works, themes, and masters. [WH]
