How can Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) help us to enrich and research cultural heritage collections? How can ML models be adapted to the complexities of historical and cultural material it has not been trained for? Which biases can we reveal in historical collections? How can we gain new perspectives by using AI in researching cultural heritage data? Our new webinar series will discuss these questions with you and present projects and people who are reflecting on exactly these matters.
On Friday 7 May, we will explore Cultural AI, a new lab for culturally valued AI in the Netherlands. The vision of Cultural AI is to accelerate excellent research on the intersection of humanities and artificial intelligence. Core lab themes revolve around public values, like diversity and inclusivity, investigating how technology can deal with biases in data, account for multiple perspectives and subjective interpretations, and bridge cultural differences. At this webinar, the Lab’s partners and ancillary research groups will give us an introduction to the project and present examples for the running projects in and related to the Cultural AI Lab. We look forward to hearing from Vendela Grundell (Stockholm University), Laura Hollink (Centrum voor Wiskunde en Informatica), Marieke van Erp (DHLab and Cultural AI Lab Director), Valentin Vogelmann (KNAW Humanities Cluster), Mari Wigham (Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision), and Cindy Zalm (National Museum of World Cultures, NL) and Johan Oomen.
