CWI-researcher Laura Hollink talked about the Cultural AI Lab in the two-weekly science podcast Snoek op Zolder. How can public values like diversity and inclusiveness be translated into AI applications? How can AI applications take into account multiple perspectives, subjective interpretations and cultural differences? For example, how can AI detect controversial terms in heritage collections? 

 

 

 

The Cultural AI Lab builds a bridge between cultural heritage institutions, the humanities and computer science. It is a cooperation between CWI, the KNAW Humanities Cluster (KNAW HuC), the Koninklijke Bibliotheek (KB), the Rijksmuseum, the Nederlands Instituut voor Beeld en Geluid (Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision), TNO, the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam (VU University Amsterdam) and the University of Amsterdam.

'Snoek op Zolder' is a podcast of the National Innovation Centre Artificial Intelligence (ICAI) and the Dutch AI Coalition (NL AIC). Podcast presenter Hennie Huijgens dives into the world of artificial intelligence with a researcher from a public or private organisation. His main question is 'what is the current state of affairs in AI research, and what does that mean for me and for society?'
