Session 9 – AI and Librarianship: Traveling into the Future on Neural Engines – 2:30 – 3:30 pm

Jason Griffey, Director of Strategic Initiatives, NISO
Artificial intelligence and machine learning are fascinating because they are somehow simultaneously banal and magical, every day and marvelous, omnipresent and yet still special. In the modern era, the price of computation has fallen so low that we are now inventing entirely new methods of using it, and the continued decrease in cost means that the next 10 years will be an ever-expanding universe of potential for new uses for these tools. This talk will survey the current state of AI/ML tools in the information and media space, and will explore at least one potential future for information seeking and analysis that may emerge.
