The objective of this presentation is to establish the importance of the implementation of artificial intelligence tools for the preservation of the digital documents that house the archives of Latin America. It is true that in Latin America many archives have not started the digitization process of their collections, it seems that preservation has stagnated there. Many times this happens due to lack of technological resources and the little training that there is in the staff. This means that the progress in preserving collections is limited. However, despite these problems that plague the region, it is necessary to talk about the next step: artificial intelligence. What are the alternatives for the implementation of AI in the archives of Latin America? How viable is its application? How does it contribute to improving the processes that are carried out? All these questions will be discussed in the session.
