The National Archives’ Techne Digital Seminar for Postgraduate Students
27th Apr 2021 10:00am-1:00pm
The National Archives
is offering a 3-hour training and development seminar, offering insight into
our research and work on digital and our collections. We encourage students
interested in digital research in cultural heritage, digital humanities and
digital scholarship research to attend the session.
The day will aim to
provide an overview of the computational landscape, beginning with the very
basics of working with data through to the principles behind AI. There are
thousands of online resources available for learning particular skills, such as
programming or data science, but for many technology is intimidating, full of
jargon, and they don’t know where to start.
therefore, will try to cut through the jargon and identify core technologies,
and the concepts behind them, which may be of use to humanists. It will include
introductions to data exploration, visualisation techniques and machine
learning for cultural heritage research, as well as an interactive session
where students will have the opportunity to actively engage with experts from
The National Archives and the ideas presented over the introductory sessions.
