"Google's Cultural Institute - What's Google up to?"

Google has a mission to organize and provide access to the world's information. Efforts with the cultural sector like the Art Project and Cultural Institute Platform use a combination of Google technologies and expert information provided by our partners to create unique online experiences. Building these projects requires a deep understanding of library, archival, and museum practices and standards as well as providing tools that can be used by a wide array of partners at different stages of cataloging and digitization. So, how are we doing? We'll discuss reactions to the work so far, present some of our latest attempts to do more with cultural heritage online, and talk about how Google would like to engage with cultural partners.

Piotr Adamczyk has been exploring the possibilities for exchange between practices in the sciences and evaluation techniques from the arts. With a background in Mathematics and Computer Science, Piotr holds graduate degrees in Human Factors and Library and Information Science from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Starting with an analyst position with The Metropolitan Museum of Art, as the Data Lead for the Google Art Project, and now on the Content Team of the Google Cultural Institute, Piotr's work is focused on the use of open/linked data in cultural heritage institutions.

A reception will follow: Enjoy drinks and refreshments on the outdoor terrace on what promises to be a balmy Southern California evening.
