Posted: 12-03-2021 Topics: GLAM Artificial Intelligence

LIBER is excited to announce a brand new workshop series on the topic of ‘Applying and deploying Artificial Intelligence (AI) in GLAMs’.

5 workshops will take place from the 29th of March to 2 April 2021. The workshops are organised by AI4LAM (Teaching and Learning Working Group) and co-hosted by LIBER and the BnF.

The aim of the workshops is to provide training opportunities for those interested in applying and deploying Artificial Intelligence (AI) in Libraries, Galleries, Archives, and Museums.

The series will bring together a diverse community of experts with subject and domain expertise, as well as technologists across GLAM institutions for a collaborative learning event to share tools and experiences and to reflect on the process of applying AI and its implications for GLAM institutions.
