Registration is now open for the next webinar from the Open Preservation Foundation.
'Universal Virtual Interactor: Algorithmic recommendations for accessing software-dependent data in our collections'.
Thursday 26 September | 16:00 CEST | 15:00 BST RegisterSpeakers:
Klaus Rechert, EaaSI Emulation Architect and Lead Developer
Seth Anderson, EaaSI Program Manager
As part of the Scaling Emulation as a Service Infrastructure (EaaSI) program of work, we are developing the Universal Virtual Interactor (UVI). The UVI gives users the ability to click on a link to a digital object (for example in a library’s catalog or an archival finding aid) and have it “automagically” open in a representative version of the “original” software, within your web browser, using an emulator. Our goal with the UVI is to match digital objects to configured computing environments automatically. Moreover, our goal is to match them to the “best” environment, both from authenticity and functionality perspectives — ensuring the user’s ability to decide which environment is “best” is flexible. We look forward to discussing in greater detail with you all!
There are 100 places available on a first come, first served basis. The recording and slides will be available to OPF members who cannot attend live.
