Artificial intelligence henceforth takes part in our daily life and is an endless source of discoveries! However, how can it be effectively included in our libraries, archives and museums? As a member of the ai4lam community, and in collaboration with Paris-Saclay University’s libraries,  the BnF organized the  3rd conference “Les futurs Fantastiques” about artificial intelligence in libraries, archives and museums.


This conference aims to delve into the different opportunities offered by AI in cultural institutions such as GLAMs. Various topics were on the agenda such as feedback from previous experiments, examples of tools, models or  best practices,  but also ethical considerations regarding AI and its use. 
The target audience is composed, on the one hand, of libraries, archives and museums professionals who work with data, digital collections and projects using AI. On the other hand, researchers, users, and artists who use AI within the framework of the heritage collections of these institutions are also invited to explore the conference’s content, as is anyone with interest in discovering and developing their skills on this subject!
