Preserving Heritage at Risk with Google Arts & Culture and CyArk

Short thesis

Our heritage is our history and we are losing it through human conflict and natural disasters. Modern technology helps us record and share it before it’s too late.



Chance Coughenour, Program Manager at Google Arts & Culture and Elizabeth Lee, VP at CyArk will discuss how advanced technology is being used to preserve and share the stories of global heritage sites at risk. Chance will present recent Google Arts & Culture projects and Elizabeth will present CyArk's diverse contributions to the heritage sector for more than a decade. They will then share the story of their recent collaboration together bringing new access to CyArk's collection and participants will learn how they can use the data for educational and research purposes.
