    World Digital Preservation Day is held on the first Thursday of every November. This year we will celebrate all things digital preservation on 7th November 2019!

    With the theme 'At-Risk Digital Materials' the digital preservation community will come together to celebrate their work - the collections they have preserved, the access they have maintained and the understanding they have fostered by preserving digital materials.

    Pervasive, changing and ubiquitous, digital technologies are a defining feature of our age. Digital materials are a core commodity for industry, commerce and government. They are fundamental for research, the law and medicine. The creative industries, cultural heritage and the media depend on reliable access to digital materials while families and friends extend and sustain their relationships through digital interactions. What better reasons to celebrate the opportunities created by digital preservation?! 

    The aim of World Digital Preservation Day is to create greater awareness of digital preservation that will translate into a wider understanding which permeates all aspects of society – business, policy making, personal good practice.

    Ooh, yeah! All right!

    I certainly can't knock all things digital, Pap.  After all, without digital, I could not be tying this right now!

    What are your thoughts on A.I.?  I find the idea frightening and yet there is a lot of support for it.  Will A.I. make the world completely unnatural or will it be used to help preserve the natural world?

    IMHO, technology is beneficial only when we know how to use it. We need to put technology in the service of humanity and not the other way around. Bear in mind that at the end of the day we (humans) are the ones who train them (machines) and make the final decision. Check out the following links for real-life applications of AI as well as the latest biotechnological advances.
    Because I have a feeling that you would be more interested in the second part, you may also want to find out about this experiment.
