Cultural heritage institutions offer their vast collection of exhibits to the public through their websites. These exhibits come in the form of artworks (e.g. paintings), artefacts, audiovisual archives (e.g. collections of videos, stills, texts and audio) and even weapons. This study will be undertaken within the Agora project. Specifically, utilized in this study will be objects from the EUscreen and OpenImages collections of the Netherlands Institute of Sound and Vision.
The ultimate objective is to enrich the metadata of the objects from the aforementioned institutions. In order to achieve this, Information Extraction techniques will be applied on the existing metadata schema of the objects. As a result, numerous concepts, i.e., titles, names of people and locations, will be extracted. Thus, objects that display similar concepts can be correlated, paving the way for an object-event correlation. Consequently, given that we know which objects relate to which events, we can start enriching their metadata schema.
