LUSTRE Workshop 2: AI and Born-Digital Archives in the Government Sector and Beyond: Challenges and Opportunities
May 4 @ 10:00 am – 3:30 pm
We are pleased to invite you to the second workshop organised by the AHRC-funded project Unlocking our Digital Past with Artificial Intelligence (LUSTRE) led by Dr Lise Jaillant (Loughborough University). LUSTRE seeks to better understand how Artificial Intelligence (AI) can help improve the preservation, access to and usability of government archives produced in digital form.
Our Workshop 2 will take place on the 4th of May 2023 in London (The White Chapel building) and will be streamed online. The workshop will continue our discussions on AI applied to born-digital archives, particularly government archives.
