About this Episode

This week I spoke with Daniel van Strien, a digital curator working at the British Library. Daniel has worked on a number of projects at the intersection of archives, libraries and machine learning and I was really happy to have the chance to get to unpack some of the ways he's finding to apply these techniques and tools.

In particular, I found it interesting how important the annotation process is as part of many overall workflows, as well as how simple out-of-the-box techniques like image classification using a fine-tuned model could satisfy many low-hanging fruit-type use cases.
