Computing Cultural Heritage with incoming professor Benjamin Lee

Join us in welcoming Benjamin Charles Germain Lee to the UW iSchool this September as an assistant professor and founding affiliate of CALMA. Lee’s interdisciplinary research in computing cultural heritage lies at the intersection of machine learning, library and information science, and the digital humanities. Interested Ph.D. students are invited to join Lee in this research through his forthcoming Lab for Computing Cultural Heritage. You can learn more about Lee’s research in this area by checking out the recording of his recent talk with CALMA, “Computing cultural heritage—Toward search and discovery at scale.”
