Researcher (AI / Machine Learning)


  • 1 Month initially
  • Outside IR35
  • Richmond, Surrey

A review of the whole-of-market for AI tools to aid selection of born-digital records and provide a written report on the findings including a recommendation to test between two and four tools. Our client will also use them to understand the content of records to provide more context for researchers.

You will need to work collaboratively with the project team. The project will be led by the Service Owner for Digital Preservation, working with data scientists, digital archivists, information managers and a project manager.

One of the biggest challenges for departments is the selection of born-digital records. The huge volumes of these records on shared drives and in EDRMS means that the manual methods used for the selection of paper records are not feasible. The researcher will survey the whole of the AI landscape to identify the AI tools and approaches that could be used to identify records suitable for the selection of born-digital records for transfer.
