Information Access Seminar

Documenting and Preserving AI Systems

Friday, September 8, 2023
3:10 pm to 5:00 pm PDT

Clifford Lynch

A discussion of documenting and preserving various kinds of AI systems, with some emphasis on recent large language models. This is an area that seems to have received relatively little attention, but seems like it will be very important going forward. The discussion will consider how to frame the challenges, and also relationships with the considerably more mature area of software preservation.

This seminar will be held online only.
