Time Machine is a large-scale research initiative aiming to develop the big data of the past, a huge distributed digital information system mapping European social, cultural, and geographical evolution through time. Its aim is to design and implement advanced new digitisation and Artificial Intelligence technologies to mine Europe’s vast cultural heritage, providing fair and free access to information that will support future scientific and technological developments in Europe.
Time Machine Croatia Info Day gathered the interested public and experts in the field of humanities, culture, science, history, IT and the research sector to learn more about the Time Machine project as well as the Time Machine Organisation. Furthermore, research projects on the Croatian national level closely connected to the overall aims of Time Machine were presented.
