Utilisation par un visiteur de l'application Ikonikat au musée du Louvre-Lens

A visitor using the Ikonikat (Ikonik Analysis Toolkit) app at the Louvre-Lens Museum. Here, the visitor is in front of the Mathieu Le Nain painting "The Pilgrims at Emmaus" (circa 1645). On his tablet, he has used his finger to mark the areas of the painting he thinks are the most significant. The app, a tool for the visual analysis of artworks, is aimed at the general public as well as experts. Both a research tool and a cultural mediation tool, it aids understanding of how visitors respond to artworks according to their sociological profile (age, level of education, etc.). Ikonikat forms part of the VISUALL-tek project, a library of tools that enables the collective examination of images. These apps are the result of an interdisciplinary dialogue between social science researchers and computer scientists specialising in human-machine interaction.

CNRS Images,

Our work is guided by the way scientists question the world around them and we translate their research into images to help people to understand the world better and to awaken their curiosity and wonderment.
