Venice International University and the MUHAI Project were cooperating partners in the workshop on Archives and AI: Coping with Climate Change, held at VIU premises on the San Servolo Campus on May 22-24, 2021.
The event was held in occasion of the launch of the exhibition entitled "Navigating Aqua Granda, a digital community memory", within the framework of "Aqua Granda, a digital community memory" project, launched in November 2020 by the EU H2020 ODYCCEUS project and Science Gallery Venice.
One of main outputs of this project is a book, available in open access at the following link: https://bit.ly/3bVUJ8n
The book contains background on the historical roots of digital community memories and on today’s role of social media and describes the meteorological phenomena that give rise to big floods in Venice and their impact on the architecture of the city. It details how a digital community memory has been set up about the Aqua Granda floods in Venice and documents the exhibition Navigating Aqua Granda, a digital community memory in which a number of scientists and artists show how they have explored this digital community memory to help creIate memorials for these devastating events.
