Professor and Researcher


Moisés Rockembach is Professor of Information Science and Archival Science at the Faculty of Librarianship and Communication at the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul (Brazil) and research leader of the Research Group in Digital Preservation. Moisés is also a researcher at CITCEM – Transdisciplinary Research Center for Culture, Space and Memory – R&D Unit (University of Porto / Portugal) and a researcher at InterPARES Trust AI – Artificial Intelligence (University of British Columbia / Canada). He is a Visiting Scholar at KU Leuven (Belgium), engaged in activities of the KU Leuven Digital Society Institute.


In recent years, the use of artificial intelligence in the field of archives and records management has grown significantly. From automatic classification and tagging to the creation of digital surrogates, AI has the potential to revolutionize the way we manage and access our cultural heritage. However, as with any new technology, there is a need for a better understanding of its capabilities and limitations, as well as the ethical considerations surrounding its use. As part of the residency, I aim to explore AI Literacy and how AI can be used to enhance the accessibility and preservation of archival records, while also promoting an understanding of the ethical considerations involved in using AI in this context. I will explore the various ways in which AI can be applied to these areas and provide guidance on how to effectively and ethically use these technologies. I am confident that this project will not only benefit the professionals working in this field, but also the broader public, as it will help to increase transparency and understanding around the use of AI in the management of our cultural heritage.
