Automation, Access and AI are becoming keywords to decipher our history. We do not suffer from a lack of records, but from too many records - often locked away in dark archives.
How can we shed light on born-digital and digitised archives? What is the role of automation and AI? How can we give greater access to archives currently closed to the public? What are the best ways to involve donors/ creators of born-digital archives, and work with them in an active and collaborative way rather than as a passive part of the deposit process?
This three-day conference in London, 15-17 January 2020 will bring together archivists, humanities scholars, computer scientists and policy makers to discuss the way we work with archives now. At a time of rapid change, it is essential to harness the data revolution to bring our cultural heritage from obscurity to light.
This conference is partly funded by an AHRC Leadership Fellowship awarded to Dr Jaillant for “Survival of the Weakest: Preserving and Analysing Born-Digital Records to Understand How Small Poetry Publishers Survive in the Global Marketplace.”
