Webinar Cultural AI Lab

How can we use 'Artificial Intelligence' in cultural research and raise consciousness of cultural context within the technology?
Research- knowledge- and heritage institutions are joining their efforts in a unique cooperation. The central question is:  How can we use ‘Artificial Intelligence’ in cultural research and raise consciousness of cultural context within the technology?

The Centrum Wiskunde & Informatica (CWI), KNAW Humanities Cluster, KB National Library of the Netherlands, Dutch Institute of Sound and Vision, Rijksmuseum, TNO, University of Amsterdam, and Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam are all working together and forming an alliance within the new ICAI lab on Cultural AI.  These parties will work together on developing AI-tools applicable in the cultural heritage sector. 

In this webinar you will learn about the various projects from the Cultural AI Lab and why now it’s the time to make sure AI-technology raises consciousness of cultural contexts.
