Robin steps back in as host this week to find out more about Sotera Heritage from co-founder Elizabeth Marston. 

Sotera is using AI and machine learning to create irrevocable digital identities for ancient antiquities, helping insurers to accurately verify objects and provide tools for law enforcement agencies in the fight against the illicit sale of stolen artefacts.  

Talking points include: 

  • Digital fingerprints for antiquities
  • Creating patterns through image recognition
  • Tracking high-value objects in real-time
  • Building a solution for insurers
  • Crowdsourcing data through partnerships

The conversation also covers a shared love of wine as they discuss Elizabeth’s role at the Marston Family Vineyard in Napa Valley and the impact of last year’s devastating California wildfires.
