    What potential applications and benefits do artificial intelligence methods offer museums? The field has recently gained momentum in the German-speaking world, with pilot projects underway at many cultural institutions and universities, the topic being discussed in exhibitions, and festivals and hackathons dedicated to experiments in the artistic field. In the English-speaking world, Oonagh Murphy (Goldsmiths, University of London) and Elena Villaespesa (School of Information, Pratt Institute) founded “The Museums + AI Network” in 2019 and developed a toolkit in workshops to make the topic more accessible. With the founding of the German-speaking network “KI & Museen”, it made sense to undertake a translation of the toolkit and to expand it with ongoing projects from the German context. It offers insights into the use of artificial intelligence in museums, supports the conception of own projects with several worksheets and explains central terms of the debate.
