Podcast series on Artificial Intelligence and the humanities

Is AI for me? Perspectives from the humanities is a new podcast mini-series that is part of the Jisc Research Talk podcasts.

There’s been an outburst of AI-talk in the last few months, but it’s not often that we hear about what it means to engage with AI in the context of the humanities.

Over six episodes, we will be talking to researchers and informational professionals who will share their views, experiences and work to help us understand AI’s place in today’s humanities scholarship.

This mini-series provides an overview for non-specialists, on the context, opportunities and challenges relating to the adoption of AI within humanities scholarship, and discusses, among other things, research practice and multidisciplinary teams, working with complex humanities data sets, skills, the role of libraries and data providers, major AI projects, and offer a gaze into the future.


We will then take a little Summer break but watch this space for the fourth episode with Leif Isaksen coming out at the beginning of September .
