iArtHis_LAB is a research, innovation and training laboratory for the development of digital studies on artistic culture, committed in particular to the progress and consolidation of the History of Digital Art in Spain.
iASD iArtHis_LAB Software Development is the technological branch of the group. It develops web applications to ease the tasks required to manage research projects, allowing graphical, geographic and numerical analysis of the data obtained during the process.

It is in the mission of iArtHis_LAB to spread the culture of the academic, educational, both with a student and research digital approach, and both too in the Humanities in general and in Art History in particular.
At iASD we have the experience and the academic, technical and scientific endorsement to make more valuable, with security and reliability, the results of any research project through the web publication. But as we are aware about the existing products to do so are not well suited to the true project needs, we develop the right platforms to do so with safety and guarantee.
We collaborate with other international research groups to make available to anyone interested in specific knowledge of Art History, approached from a digital perspective, what they need.
Exploring negotiation spaces between human cognition and machine cognition. Barr X Inception CNN is an experimental project whose aim is finding out the conditions that will define our hyper technological future and the available spaces for propositional actions that will help avoid the collapse of human beings and guide us in the development of new forms of subjectivity.
Barr X Inception CNN
Synergic initiative aiming to promote citizen participation in the challenging purpose of preventing the degradation, deterioration and loss of cultural and artistic heritage, particularly that of the province of Malaga (Andalusia, Spain). Visitors can expose cases of patrimonial degradation, which will be reviewed, valued and verified by the group, and published if the validity requirements are met.
Collaboration with TIEDPAAN research group, of the Art History Department of the University of Málaga. Three centuries of engraving art (XVI-XVIII): print and visual culture in Andalusia and its impact on the new world. New approaches. The stamp (carving and intaglio) and its significance in the visual culture of Andalusia in a period that ranges from the development of the woodcut technique to the expansion of lithography.
The engine pumbing iASD's work is to make available to the university community simple tools, without unnecessary sophistication, easy to handle and having slight learning curves, made entirely with code whose source is available to those who want to review and improve them, or even use them as a starting point to evolve, obtaining better solutions.
We refuse to use soft as a throwing weapon or as a quality-discriminating factor in the results of the investigation. Our programs and applications are free to use, although we in no way deny the possibility of monetizing any resource made using them.
Unified repository of information about artistic exhibitions in Spain. It contains more than 72,500 actors, catalogs, museum installations producer companies, institutions, exhibitions and artworks since 2000. It includes, in addition, around 400,000 metadata, 170,000 relationships between records and 225,000 taxonomic assignments.
Online application designed to get geographic and statistical information and generate new knowledge from the data kept in Expofinder. To do this, it uses quantification techniques for systematized, ordered and normalized data. It is a scientific tool allowing the user to verify and test their hypotheses.
Simple online application without special knowledge requirements on the part of the user, dealing with data kept in Expofinder to carry out searches and analysis at a no-so-big scale of the particularities and relationships of the records, grouped into collections according to their features. It includes a tool to perform SQL queries too.
In iASD we strongly belive in the open source initiative value. As stated in OSI, "open source enables a development method for software that harnesses the power of distributed peer review and transparency of process. The promise of open source is higher quality, better reliability, greater flexibility, lower cost, and an end to predatory vendor lock-in".
Because this we make our software available to the developer community through our GitHub repositories. Feel free to participate by modifying, improving and correcting the source code of our tools.
All the code developed by iASD and used both in the tools and micro-applications and in the projects is free to use and access (see legal info). Our policy is based on the constant improvement and optimization of our work, and is because this this all ideas, suggestions and contributions count. Feel free to participate.
