Tom Malzbender: Why I Support CHI

Tom Malzbender: Why I Support CHI

I am a research scientist who cares deeply about the fragility of our shared cultural heritage in a volatile world. My contributions to cultural preservation are in the fields of computer vision, imaging, and 3D graphics. I am the co-inventor of Reflectance Transformation Imaging (RTI).

I have been collaborating with Cultural Heritage Imaging (CHI) since 2002, and I joined their Board of Directors in 2014. Why do I do this?

Our global cultural heritage is unique, irreplaceable, and essential to our sense of ourselves and our history on the planet. We collectively share that heritage, and we are also witnesses to the threats that prey upon it every day. When you make a donation to CHI, you are supporting the development and dissemination of practical digital imaging and preservation techniques around the world.

Like me, you may feel the strong pull of this important work. CHI has a highly successful track record of doing a lot with a little.

Give to CHI and you support the documentation and preservation of our human heritage.
