At Cogapp our latest research has focused on image analysis and machine learning using the million images available from the Qatar Digital Library, as well as other IIIF repositories. We started with a simple problem: how to automatically identify "visually interesting" documents (i.e. those with illustrations and diagrams) among the hundreds of thousands that do not have these features. This led us to explore techniques for image analysis, ranging from colour extraction using services such as Imagaa, to machine learning techniques to classify documents after training with sample data sets. For these we used both bespoke software using the Python scikit-learn library, and third-party API services such as Clarifai. In this talk we'll show how to use the IIIF Presentation and Image APIs to gather input, followed by discussing the interesting outcomes from our use of these techniques for bulk image analysis.
