The visual computing ecosystem for GLAM institutions, which constitutes the research framework of this doctoral program. The framework intertwines methodology from visualization and visual analytics (green) with computer vision, machine learning, and multimedia information retrieval (yellow). Blue represents data, and light gray arrows illustrate the traditional data acquisition and annotation process. Dark grey arrows depict the manifold connections and interactions between the visual computing components investigated. Different PhD theses (T1 to T5) of the program address, combine, and integrate different components.
