Piotr Adamczyk of Google's Art Project discusses the extraordinary program that puts the best art collections of the world on the Web. Thanks to this effort, people can now view 30,000 works of art from more than 150 museums, without leaving the house. A member of the content team of the Google Cultural Institute, Adamczyk's work is focused on the use of open/linked data in cultural heritage institutions. A former analyst at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Adamczyk has authored papers, organized workshops and served as a program committee member for the Association for Computing Machinery and cultural heritage conferences. His arts research includes residencies at the Banff New Media Institute, Medialab-Prado and Eyebeam Art + Technology Center. This lecture made possible in part by the George Swinnerton Parker Memorial Lecture Fund.
