From BL Labs:
The annual Competition looks for transformative project ideas which use the British Library’s digital collections and data in new and exciting ways.
After much deliberation and a strong number of entries this year, BL Labs is excited to introduce the BL Labs Competition (2016) finalists and their two projects:
Black Abolitionist Performances and their Presence in Britain
By Hannah-Rose Murray, PhD student with the Department of American and Canadian Studies, University of Nottingham.
SherlockNet: Using Convolutional Neural Networks (CNNs) to automatically tag and caption the British Library Flickr collection
By Brian Do (MD student at Harvard University/MIT, Massachusetts), Luda Zhao and Karen Wang (Masters students in Computer Science at Stanford University, California).
