The AEOLIAN project will lead to the following outputs:
- “Employing machine learning and artificial intelligence in cultural institutions”
- “How can ML/AI help improve visitor-facing experiences?”
- “What challenges do they raise in terms of privacy, ethics, research integrity, reproducibility, and bias?”
- “What value can they add to sharing content, methods, expertise and practice?”
- “Creating and interrogating all document types and unlocking new data.”
- “What sorts of new and emerging methods will enable new breakthroughs in working with digital collections?”
Five Case Studies of US and UK Cultural Organisations:
- Wellcome Trust
- Frick Collection
- The National Library of Wales and History of Parliament
- The HathiTrust
- The National Library of Scotland
These case studies will feed into an open-access 100-page report for an interdisciplinary audience outlining avenues for future research.
Two Collections of Essays:
These collections will be based on research from the AEOLIAN project, and will be published as special issue of journal or edited collection.
Digital Preservation Coalition (DPC) Blog Post
The first blog post, written by Paul Gooding, Senior Lecturer in Information Studies at the University of Glasgow, was published on the Digital Preservation Coalition (DPC) blog. A not-for-profit membership organization, the DPC was founded in 2002, and now gathers more than 100 agencies from 13 countries. The blog post introduces the AEOLIAN network and its project outputs. It also encouraged readers to join our AEOLIAN list-serv to receive updates on our initiative and latest news.
Artificial Intelligence for Libraries, Archives & Museums (AI4LAM) Blog Post
The second blog post, published on the Artificial Intelligence for Libraries, Archives & Museums website, has been written by Glen Worthey, Associate Director for Research Support Services in the HathiTrust Research Center, based in the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign School of Information Sciences. Formed in 2018, AI4LAM is a collaborative framework for libraries, archives and museums to organize, share and elevate their knowledge about and use of artificial intelligence. This blog post details our partnerships and work so far, as well as our upcoming workshop on July 7. It also encourages readers to join our AEOLIAN list-serve to keep up to date with the project.
