Visual Knowledge Aggregation: From Static To Dynamic Information Systems in Library Contexts
Andrea NANETTI educated in Medieval and Renaissance studies in Italy (University of Bologna), France (University of Paris I-Sorbonne and Paris X-Nanterre), Germany (University of Cologne), Greece (National Hellenic Research Foundation), and USA (Brown University). He worked on research questions and solutions through the cross-fertilization of different methodologies (humanistic, social and computational). He is working on interdependencies between artificial actions and computational operations in terms of both quantity and quality. He is proposing the theoretical need to direct traditional disciplinary knowledge towards a formal science of heritage able to study what kind of data and information—now encoded in complex interactions of written, pictorial, sculptural, architectural, and digital records, oral memories, practices, and performed rituals —may be inherited by machine learning algorithms. Currently he is with NTU Singapore an Associate Chair (Research) in the School of Art, Design and Media, Senior Research Team member in the Complexity Institute, and Faculty member of the University Scholars Programme.
