Civil War Photo Sleuth in TIME

Our Civil War Photo Sleuth project was featured in a TIME article by Olivia Waxman, “How Artificial Intelligence Is Helping Identify Thousands of Unknown Civil War Soldiers.” The article includes interviews with several prominent CWPS users showing how the software has benefited them by identifying unknown soldiers in Civil War-era photos.

Congrats to Vikram Mohanty, lead developer of CWPS and Crowd Lab Ph.D. student, for this publicity!
