Artificial intelligence techniques have been utilized to reconstruct the historic 3D map of the famed Mont-Saint-Michel —a 17th century icon of French.
"According to the project website, ""to create the HoloLens experience, Microsoft partnered with innovative French technology companies. Iconem, which specializes in digitizing cultural heritage sites in 3D, recreated the Mont-Saint-Michel model and site using a process where artificial intelligence process hundreds of thousands of photos—taken by drones and cameras on the ground—to render models that are so precise, they look fully photo-realistic. HoloForge Interactive then used these 3D renderings to build the mixed reality experience that takes viewers back in time. "" "
The project is beneficial for the preservation of historical-cultural heritage and construction remains.
