Webinar: Introduction to AI

In June, UK Heritage Pulse panel members answered a survey about the use of AI in the heritage sector. Although many were aware of AI tools, fewer than 1 in 4 respondents had used any within their organisation and only half had considered how it might change how people interact with heritage organisations. See the full results.

In response to these findings, we delivered an interactive webinar for UK Heritage Pulse members with freelance marketing consultant Jo Burnham on Wednesday 4 October at 12pm. Jo introduced a selection of AI tools and techniques and explored how they might be used responsibly by the heritage sector.

Session details

In this practical and interactive session, Jo will:

  • Introduce some key AI tools (including ChatGPT and more) and think about how they might save time or resource and add value in heritage sector, from cataloguing to copy writing.
  • Give advice about how to get the best out of AI tools by using the right prompts and giving yourself time to practice and explore.
  • Lead participants through a couple of example exercises, giving you the opportunity to try out some freely available AI tools during the event.
  • Discuss some of the limitations of these tools and consider how they might best be harnessed in the heritage sector.

Who is this session for?

This session is designed for heritage sector professionals. You don’t need to have any experience of using AI tools but should be curious about AI and willing to explore how AI tools might be used in your work.
