We have an open PhD position at the Digital Mathematics Research Group (DIMA) in Data Quality control.

Since the mid-nineties, cultural institutions have undoubtedly entered the digital age. In Belgium, the government adopted in 2004 a first digitization plan for a ten-year period and in 2014 a second phase was launched. The issue of quality control was one of the major obstacles in the first phase of digitization projects. Indeed, it appeared that many projects had underestimated the extent of this step both in human and technical terms in the overall process of digitization. However, it is clear that quality control is an essential component to every stage of a digitization project if you want to ensure the integrity and consistency of files and data produced, as well as their long-term conservation.

The goal of the PhD is to address the issue of quality control in two stages. First, by focusing on methodological aspects, proposing guidelines applicable in the treatment of heritage collections. Then, by developing technical tools that automate tasks related to quality control or support the manual check. You will work on two types of collections: the digitized collections of the Royal Library of Belgium that will address the problems with textual documents and the photographic collections of the CEGESOMA which provide a set of iconographic documents.

Requirements: Master in mathematics, computer science or engineering with a strong interest in image quality
