University of Nebraska-Lincoln faculty are encouraged to attend the 10th annual Nebraska Forum on Digital Humanities, to be held April 4-5 in the Willa Cather Dining Complex. Registration for the event is required, and all presentations and events are open to the public.

This year’s forum, “From Exclusion to Inclusion: Creating Responsible and Equitable Information and AI Systems for Digital Cultural Heritage,” will bring scholars from around the world to discuss what it would take to develop artificial intelligence systems that manage cultural heritage materials 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 being fair and unbiased in how these materials are collected, described and used, while also teaching scholars how to understand both the technology and the social aspects involved.

The event is sponsored by the Center for Digital Research in the Humanities. This long-running series highlights the diverse intellectual activity of the digital humanities field and showcases the work of early career scholars. This year’s forum is supported by a Grand Challenges planning grant.
