Sam Tanson, Minister for Culture, Claude D. Conter, Director of the BnL, and Carlo Blum, Deputy Director of the BnL, invited members of the press and media to discover the new chatbot on the eluxemburgensia.lu portal. Capable of understanding French, German and English, the chatbot assists users in exploring Luxembourg’s history and offers answers based on historical newspaper articles.
Drawing on a technology in use at ChatGPT, the artificial intelligence-based chat agent developed by OpenAI, the BnL’s experts have indexed digitised Luxembourgish documents and prepared a high-performance database that supports semantic searches. This breakthrough marks a major milestone in the BnL’s mission to offer easier and enhanced access to its digitised Luxembourgish resources.
The chatbot is a free and experimental tool that can be accessed remotely. To use it, all you need to do is log in using your library card or a Google account.
