Computational Archival Science: A Paradigm Shift Across the Data
July 6 @ 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm EDT
A 1.5 hour presentation and discussion on “Computing the Archives” with an introduction by Richard Marciano and Jane Greenberg on Computational Archival Science for archival and library students, followed by students (doctoral & MLIS) who will illustrate their CAS experiences working on two projects:
- an 8-week project that led to a 2-day UK-US datathon with the Maryland State Archives on a project called: Computational Treatments to re-member the Legacy of Slavery (CT-LoS) — “Reasserting Erased Memory” — [see: https://ai-collaboratory.net/projects/ct-los/student-led-datathon-at-the-maryland-state-archives/], and
- application of AI Machine Learning and OCR to WW-II FDR Presidential Library diaries (part of the Henri Morgenthau Collection).
The webinar was co-sponsored by CLIR, and co–hosted by Oklahoma State University Emerging Technologies & Creativity Research Lab, and led by postdoctoral fellows Rebecca Y. Bayeck, Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture & Azure Stewart, New York University, as part of “CLIR’s Emerging Technologies, Big Data & Archives” series [see: https://sites.google.com/view/emergtechbigdatarchives/project-home].
200 attendees from over 30 countries took part in the webinar:
