Advancing Access to Historical Legislative Archives through Artificial Intelligence
Written on July, 2023
In an era characterised by rapid technological innovation, Artificial Intelligence (AI) promises to revolutionise numerous sectors and processes, including the way we access and interact with historical legislative archives. Archival information, traditionally confined to the realms of dusty storerooms and libraries, has immense potential to become digitally accessible to the world at large. This essay critically examines the application of AI technologies in managing legislative archives, addressing essential aspects such as the target audience, online request patterns, document types and demand, and the challenges inherent in the digitisation and AI process.
