  1. 1. In search of the sweet spot: infrastructure at the intersection of cultural heritage and data science? Dr Mia Ridge, Digital Curator, British Library @mia_out @BL_DigiSchol @LivingWMachines Data Science & Digital Humanities: new collaborations, new opportunities and new complexities panel, DH2019
  2. 2. www.bl.uk Why should GLAMs and data scientists collaborate? GLAMs (galleries, libraries, archives and museums) have vast collections • The British Library has up to 200 million items, including: 14 million books; 8 million stamps; 310,000 manuscript volumes; 4 million maps; Pamphlets, magazines, newspapers, sheet music; Television and radio recordings; Websites, e-books, e-journals. Over 3 million new items are added every year 2

GLAMs (galleries, libraries, archives and museums) have vast collections • The British Library has up to 200 million items, including: 14 million books; 8 million stamps; 310,000 manuscript volumes; 4 million maps; Pamphlets, magazines, newspapers, sheet music; Television and radio recordings; Websites, e-books, e-journals. Over 3 million new items are added every year But – that scale means cataloguing is often minimal / focused on particular uses, so they’re not easily findable 3

  7. 7. What stands in the way of collaboration? ‘to get the most out of machine learning at your organization, you need the right team and the right mindset. The latter requires a cultural shift that prioritizes and rewards experimentation, measurement, and testing throughout your organization’ - Google, ‘Everything a marketer needs to know about machine learning’ 7 Image from page 440 of "Bell telephone magazine" (1922)
  8. 8. ‘you need the right team and the right mindset. The latter requires a cultural shift that prioritizes and rewards experimentation, measurement, and testing throughout your organization’ - Google, ‘Everything a marketer needs to know about machine learning’ ‘And a lot of spare capacity across teams. Whose job changes when you bring in data science?’ - me 8 What stands in the way of collaboration?
  9. 9. • GLAM data can add up to terabytes of data – transfer, storage and processing become expensive • Copyright / licensing and data protection issues • Are GLAM and academic data science outcomes aligned? Novelty vs application, long-term, at scale? • How do we integrate AI-generated metadata at scale without flooding the catalogue with ‘mentions’? 9 What else stands in the way of collaboration?
