Viewing at Scale: DH and Image Analysis

What might be possible if we explore images as data in DH? This talk will address this question in two parts. The first will begin by discussing computational image analysis and then turn to the concept of distant viewing. Then, we will zoom out to the larger ecosystem of image analysis in DH and why this is an exciting and pressing moment for DH.
