At the end of the Fall 2018 semester, I took part in a Microsoft , Met Museum and MIT hackathon in Cambridge, MA. The objective was to apply AI to the open source archives of the Met’s collection and invite the public to actively engage with the museum’s collection.


“A unique event took place at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. Museum curators, engineers, designers, and researchers gathered in The Met’s iconic Great Hall to explore and share new visions about how artificial intelligence (AI) might drive stronger connection between people and art. A highlight from the festivities was the “reveal” of a series of artificial intelligence prototypes and design concepts, developed in collaboration across three institutions: The Met, Microsoft, and MIT.”
