Machine Learning and IIIF are popular topics today when it comes to digitisation projects and digital humanities. But are these really practical topics or just buzzwords? Are these rather exclusive technologies of some elite cultural and research institutions? Or can everyday digitisation projects with less exquisite materials really benefit from such technologies? The example of the community around the open source software Goobi shows what the reality of numerous digitisation projects really looks like. What is no longer just theory and can be used in everyday life without having to develop software yourself? And what added value can actually be expected here?
