Archaeologists taught artificial intelligence to recognize and classify ancient ceramics

Archaeologists from the United States have taught artificial intelligence to independently recognize and classify ancient ceramics, writes the magazine. Journal of Arkyological Science.
To do this, artificial intelligence has analyzed the ornaments of ceramic vessels, BTA reports.

Scientists often find it difficult to recognize and classify ancient ceramics. Driven by this idea, experts at the University of Northern Arizona have applied deep machine learning to classify white Tusayan pottery. To do this, they used digital images of ornate fragments of ceramic vessels that had been studied by artificial intelligence. Thus, he has learned how to effectively recognize patterns and then classify them, comparing the visual similarities and differences of ceramics.

The peculiarity of the created neural network is that it not only classifies ancient ceramics, but also explains its conclusions.
