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

1 April 2021 (18:00-20:00 CEST) – Introduction to visual AI in GLAMs
This workshop will introduce the use of visual AI for collections research, access and management. Using the example of collaborations between Oxford’s Visual Geometry Group (VGG) and researchers and curators within the GLAM sector, the speaker will provide a hands-on introduction to VGG’s open-source tools for visual search, classification, comparison and annotation. The workshop will provide a benchmark for the state of the art in visual AI across the sector, and discuss critical and ethical issues around privacy, bias and accreditation.
