As the volume of electronic records grows exponentially, archivists are faced with challenges to process and make accessible these increasingly complex records. Emerging technologies, including artificial intelligence and machine learning, are increasingly being used in support of human decision-making. How can we, as archivists, apply these technologies, and what are the implications for managing and processing electronic records? Use cases include the Library of Virginia, the University of North Carolina, and the University of Illinois.
