Through this paper, we aim at investigating the impact of artificial intelligence technologies on cultural heritage promotion and long-term preservation in terms of digitization effectiveness, attractiveness of the assets, and value empowering. Digital tools have been validated to yield sustainable and yet effective preservation for multiple types of content. For cultural data, however, there are multiple challenges in order to achieve sustainable preservation using these digital tools due to the specificities and the high-quality requirements imposed by cultural institutions. With the rise of machine learning and data science technologies, many researchers and heritage organizations are nowadays searching for techniques and methods to value and increase the reliability of cultural heritage digitization through machine learning. The present study investigates some of these initiatives highlighting their added value and potential future improvements. We mostly cover the aspects related to our context which is the long-term cost-effective digital preservation of the Qatari cultural heritage through the CEPROQHA project.
