Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to invite you to the second LUSTRE workshop organised by the
AHRC-funded project Unlocking our Digital Past with Artificial Intelligence.
LUSTRE seeks to better understand how Artificial Intelligence (AI) can help
improve the preservation, access to and usability of government archives
produced in digital form.

Through a series of talks and a round table, this day long workshop continues
the discussion on the challenges and opportunities that AI offers to the
management and use of digital archives in the government sector and beyond.

The workshop will be a hybrid event (in London and online) on Thursday 4 May.

Please find below the invited speakers and the topic of their talks:

•        Keegan McBride (Oxford Internet Institute) will talk about Artificial
Intelligence in the Public Sector: Separating Myth from Reality;

•        James Lappin (Loughborough University) will discuss the The Impact of
AI on Records Management;

•        Lise Jaillant (Loughborough University) will reflect on AI and Archives
from a Researcher’s Viewpoint;
