    New 3D Software for Artifact Documentation and Analysis

    New 3D Software for Artifact Documentation and Analysis

    Archaeologists have been 3D scanning artifacts for a while now. But, what do you do with those scans? We post them on websites, use them in reports, and try to do some analysis, but, it's not consistent. This new paper from PLOS ONE is from the architects of a new software, Artifact 3D, that intends to take those scans and perform some high-level, detailed, analytical algorithms that are consistent and repeatable. We talk about it on this week's episode.

    Gamification of Education with RISC

    Gamification of Education with RISC

    MEMBERS CHECK YOUR BONUS PAGE FOR A GREAT BONUS SEGMENT!
    We talk a lot about how to get archaeologists to learn more outside the field of archaeology in order to better understand archaeology. On this episode we talk to JD Calvelli from the University of Chicago's Center for Radical Innovation and Social Change (RISC) about gamifying the learning of data science. However, this isn't for adults; it's for 4th-6th graders! Adults are able to learn as well, though. Learn something new and do it in a fun way.

    Open Source Protocols

    Open Source Protocols

    An important component of scientific research is reproducibility. In other scientific fields like medicine, protocols (step-by-step instructions) help ensure that another lab or another researcher can test our results. Lately, protocols for various technical aspects of archaeological research have been published, so Chris and Paul discuss the value of these publications.

    On Hedgehogs and Marvelous Minds: A New Technology for Point Data Collection?

    On Hedgehogs and Marvelous Minds: A New Technology for Point Data Collection?

    We love it when archaeologists look at other technologies that on first glance are not appropriate for archaeology. However, they're willing to give it a try and report on the results! The researches in the article we discuss used an indoor positioning system (IPS) to map an outdoor site in Israel. Their results are encouraging for this emerging technology.

    Archaeology and Robotics with Daniel Carvalho

    Archaeology and Robotics with Daniel Carvalho

    Daniel Carvalho is a researcher working on applied robotics for archaeology. He's interested in creating an actual robot for archaeological use. We're not talking drones or computer programs alone. We're talking about robots that can do a multitude of tasks for archaeology and beyond.
