Based on preliminary results from the EU funded 3-year Horizon 2020 project I-Media-Cities (http://imediacities.eu) and related transdisciplinary projects the conference will explore the various challenges and opportunities in applying advanced automated image analysis and other digital technologies to time-based audiovisual heritage content from European cities. Bringing together computer sciences, image analysis, humanities research and archival and conservation sciences, we will explore the epistemological impact these collaborative endeavours have on our understanding of history, place, identity and aesthetics. Are we facing a “computational turn” brought on by the application of ‘big data’ methodologies in the field of visual history and film studies?
