Scout Calvert,
This year’s forum, “From Exclusion to Inclusion: Creating Responsible and Equitable Information and AI Systems for Digital Cultural Heritage” is sponsored by the Office of Research and Economic Development Grand Challenges Seed Grant and the Center for Digital Research in the Humanities (CDRH) on April 4-5 in the Willa Cather Dining Complex, City Campus, University of Nebraska–Lincoln. Registration for the two-day event is required and all presentations and events are open to the public.

A variety of scholars from around the world will discuss the question of what would it take to develop artificial intelligence systems that manage cultural heritage materials (texts, images, videos, and data) while generating new ways to contextualize the information, ask new questions and appreciate different perspectives. A key issue to be addressed in the development of this technology is making sure we are fair and unbiased in how we collect, describe, and use these materials, while also teaching scholars how to understand both the technology and the social aspects involved.
The CDRH has hosted this forum since 2006 highlighting the diverse intellectual activity of the digital humanities field and showcasing the work of early career scholars.
