Fast Monte Carlo Method for Condition Number Estimation

The advances in algorithms, visualization, data analytics are expected to greatly impact progress in the digital presentation and preservation of cultural heritage which is of enormous importance for the human society. The theoretical results on estimating the condition numbers, which is an important problem in image restoration problems, was presented during the National Informaton Day in Bulgaria, collocated with the UNESCO 11th International Conference on Digital Presentation and Preservation of Cultural and Scientific Heritage —DiPP2021.

The event took place 23-25 September, 2021, Burgas, Bulgaria and focused on innovative results, research projects and applications in the field of digitisation, documentation, archiving, representation and preservation of global and national tangible and intangible cultural and scientific heritage.

Emphasis was placed on providing open access to digitised cultural heritage and setting up sustainable policies for its continuous digital preservation and conservation. The priority area was the digital presentation and preservation of cultural and historical objects under conditions of risk, including those from the Burgas region. The forum demonstrated innovative technologies and prototypes, including digital repositories, digital archives, virtual museums and digital libraries, which result from established practices and achievements in the field. Representatives of public and specialised libraries, museums, galleries, archives, centres, both national and foreign research institutions and universities were invited to participate and exchange experiences, ideas, knowledge and best practices of the field.

Digital Cultural Heritage is one of the target communities in the NI4OS-Europe project. The paper is available here.
