The Badischeslandes Museum organised a two-day conference on 1 and 2 December 2023 entitled “Conference on Artificial Intelligence Cultures – New Perspectives for Museums”. The aim was to discuss the use of artificial intelligence (AI) for museums and cultural heritage. The museum was to close its doors for renovations and take this time to digitise part of its collection. The conference discussed the opportunities of this technology, but also the things to be wary of. Speakers included philosophers, computer scientists, ethicists, librarians and museum curators.
As part of the conference, Baptiste Caramiaux presented the results of a series of white papers commissioned by European institutions on “Artificial Intelligence in the Creative and Cultural Sectors. The Case of Museum and Cultural Heritage”.
