WW2DB has made some progress on the less quantifiable front, too. Janice Kim, for example, very recently began to use machine learning to colorize WW2-era photographs. Going back a bit further in time, Al Griffis joined the team earlier in the year, bringing with him 30 years worth of research on the topic of German shipbuilding. WW2DB definitely has been sailing full steam ahead in 2019.
We wish all our visitors a happy, healthy, and productive 2020!
