Presentation type: Lightning talk


Do ever wanted to see old black and white pictures of ancient expeditions in full color? This is precisely what our funny hack does. Unaware of any known implementations we wrote our own experimental (very!) IIIF server and equipped it with latest machine learning techniques. In this (not too serious) lightning talk we will not only share our experiences in developing such a server, but also go back 100 years in history.
