Subject: Deadline extended. AHRC conference "Archives, Access and AI: Working with Born-Digital and Digitised Archival Collections" Archives, Access and AI: Working with Born-Digital and Digitised Archival Collections AHRC-funded International conference in London, 15-17 Jan. 2020 Please note the extended deadline for submitting an abstract: 10 June. Confirmed speakers include Rachel Foss (Head of Contemporary Archives and Manuscripts, British Library); Christopher "Cal" Lee (Professor at University of North Carolina Chapel Hill and Principal Investigator for BitCurator); Anthea Seles (Secretary General of the International Council on Archives) and many more. How can we shed light on born-digital and digitised archives? What is the role of automation and AI? How can we give greater access to archives currently closed to the public? What are the best ways to involve donors/ creators of born-digital archives, and work with them in an active and collaborative way rather than as a passive part of the deposit process? This three-day conference in London (15-17 Jan. 2020) will bring together archivists, humanities scholars, computer scientists and policy makers to discuss the way we work with archives now. At a time of rapid change, it is essential to harness the data revolution to bring our cultural heritage from obscurity to light.
