AI4LAM is an international, participatory community focused on advancing the use of artificial intelligence in, for and by libraries, archives and museums.
Community call: 20 February 2024
This month, Peter Leonard of Stanford University will be leading an expert focus conversation on speech-to-text.
The “Transformers moment” in AI has enabled a number of rapid developments in domains relevant to cultural heritage. While conversation-focused Large Language Models (such as the commercial ChatGPT service) have dominated reporting and the public imagination, Transformers have also enabled breakthroughs in speed and accuracy for Speech-To-Text or Automatic Speech Recognition.
Full details and joining details can be found in the agenda.
