Using AI to broaden access to historical archives - 21 November 2023

Please note that this event has passed.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is crucial in supporting archival processes and records management decisions, including for the increasingly digitized historical archives. The scale and complexity of historical archives contribute to make AI ever more relevant for bettering their organization and broadening access. In this talk I will discuss recent developments at the intersection of archives and AI, as well as highlight some of the challenges still lying ahead of us. I will also discuss recent work to exemplify the current state of AI applied to historical archives. Finally, I will suggest future research directions in AI for historical archives.
