Discovering the collection with AI
The MK&G's database lists over 12,000 objects with the keyword "ornament" – one of the most frequently used terms. But only a fraction of the objects can be seen in the museum. With the new Ornament Explorer, visitors can click through the entire archive via a tablet in the exhibition and make completely new connections between the digitised objects. On the horizontal level, the works are sorted by similarity with the help of artificial intelligence. On the vertical level, they are displayed based on their associated information (metadata), for example in the order of their date of origin. The prototype of the Ornament Explorer was developed by Michal Čudrnák (* 1981), Philo van Kemenade (* 1988), Igor Rjabinin (* 1986) within the NEO Lab as part of the NEO Collections project.
