In 2021 volunteer coordinators kicked off a regional chapter for AI4LAM (Artificial Intelligence for, and by Libraries, Archives and Museums). A series of talks were co-hosted between Australia and New Zealand to welcome in attendees at live sessions, to facilitate Q&A, with the principle aim of getting community members in this region talking about their work with new technologies i.e., computer vision and natural language processing (NLP) using open source tools and commercial services. AI4LAM AU/NZ playlist: A small group of educational enthusiasts ran a set of workshops on teaching and learning - looking into what’s involved with knowledge and skills development around the uptake and development of AI technologies. Who have we heard from and what have we learned? Why take a grassroots approach? Why does community building (across group boundaries) matter? What happens next?
