To work towards smart and sustainable openness of culture's data, we launched the API Culture Day in collaboration with the french startup biinlab
. It aims to raise awareness on the potential of open APIs today in a time of Open-Data and Artificial Intelligence.
The first edition was organised at the Fine Arts Museum of Lyon in France on June 28th 2019. During this day of reflection and inspiration around the use of APIs in culture, we tried to understand how the promotion and mediation of heritage are being changed with the opening of museum data and their APIs and with the new uses of machine learning.
Format: 3 keynotes from museum experts + a collaborative workshop to identify the museum's needs in new mediation tools fostered by open APIs and produce first prototype.
Experts: Isabelle Reusa, API consultant, Curator APIDays and Ex. RMN (France), Philippe Rivière, in charge of digital technology at Paris Museums (France), Diane Drubay, Founder of We Are Museums (France)
