How can technology make a visit to an art museum more compelling and rewarding?


How can technology make a visit to an art museum more compelling and rewarding?

What immediately comes to my mind are the Boston Museum of Science “responsive virtual human museum guides”, Ada and Grace [1], made at the University of Southern California Institute for Creative Technologies [2]. Certainly, such virtual human museum guides might also be implemented in augmented reality.

There is a new book available in this field, titled “Language Technology for Cultural Heritage” [3]. The AMICUS network [4] for “automated motif discovery in cultural heritage and scientific communication texts” is another available resource. And, a registry of technology-related museum projects is maintained online by MuseTech Central [5].
