AI: where’s the source?

AI: where’s the source?

Several key concerns regarding AI have emerged over the last few months – often focusing on the nature of the data (or source) that AIs draw from or are fed. Where does the data come from? Who owns it? How can we use it? How can we create, collect, curate and utilise data sources to leverage the potential of AI?  

In our work in the GLAMR sector understanding sources can be approached and understood from several perspectives. In this webinar we look at three library or archive perspectives: data, intellectual property (copyright), and evidence; and we examine how rapidly developing AI technology is impacting the ways we approach these concepts and associated practices. 

A Zoom link to join the meeting will be sent to you the day before the webinar.
