Ana Rita holds a Master’s Degree in Museology from the Faculty of Arts, University of Porto. When she started her PhD in Conservation and Restoration at Universidade Católica: School of Arts, she was faced with a vast problem related to the cataloguing and classification of digital collections. So, she started to focus her research area on AI applications in Heritage, joining computer science and the Humanities. An unexpected marriage that can develop multiplying effects both for computer science and for the safeguarding of our common Heritage.
Ana Rita’s participation in the Future Talent Programme (FTP22) was supported by FCCN, Portugal.
