Speakers: Dr Oonagh Murphy, Senior Lecturer in Digital Culture and Society, Goldsmiths, University of London and Lawrence Chiles, Head of Digital Services, The National Gallery

A conversation with Oonagh Murphy, Senior Lecturer in Digital Culture and Society at Goldsmiths, University of London and Lawrence Chiles, Head of Digital Services at The National Gallery will set out the landscape of artificial intelligence in the sector.

A Q&A led by Museums + Heritage Advisor Editor Alistair Hardaker will set the scene as AI enters many sector verticals, and will explore why the technology is the source of both optimism and apprehension. The session will be of particular use to organisations interested in the advantage of the technology but unsure of routes to application.

The session will ask:
  • What risks are associated with AI adoption in the museums and heritage sector, particularly regarding data privacy and security?
  • In what ways can AI contribute to the digitisation and virtualisation of museum collections, and what impact does this have on traditional museum practices?
  • What ethical considerations should museums bear in mind when integrating AI into their operations?
