FIAT/IFTA is proud to announce its participation to the 3rd International Conference on Digital Archives organised by the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México on November 4th to 8th in Mexico City. The conference is called ‘Forcing the Future. Artificial Intelligence and Big Data for the Digital Preservation of Sound and Moving Images.’ This title excellently matches with the leading role that FIAT/IFTA has been playing for more than 20 years in research into the use of artificial intelligence in general, and feature extraction in particular, in making audiovisual archive material accessible.
FIAT/IFTA Executive Council member Virginia Bazán-Gil (RTVE) will present FIAT/IFTA as an organisation and network and its worldwide activities to promote the awareness, preservation and access to media archives around the globe.
In addition, the conference will also be the starting point for enhanced cooperation between FIAT/IFTA and RIPDASA, the Ibero-American Network for the Digital Preservation of Sound and Moving Images (Red Iberoamericana de Preservación Digital de Archivos Sonoros y Audiovisuales).
