Academic librarians, information systems personnel and library professionals who envision or seek to incorporate emerging technologies to their library.
The role of libraries in the community has evolved considerably in the digital age as new technologies bring forth delightful new possibilities and initiatives. These rapid changes to the way we consume information, embrace knowledge, and interact with machine assisted intelligence, all have an impact on libraries.
Among the emerging technologies in the digital age, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and its varied applications is increasingly seen in our daily interactions. From Apple’s Siri or Google Assistant, to self-driving vehicles navigating the streets, the abilities of AI to recognize patterns efficiently and routinely, at a scale and speed that humans cannot take on, have made previously-thought impossible ideas come alive.
Libraries too, must consider how the expanding array of new technologies impacts the way it functions and and how it can harness its potential in order to forge ahead.
This webinar will offer insights to how libraries are transforming themselves in this digital world using technology, the opportunities and potential impact of AI on academic libraries.
- Key emerging technologies that libraries should consider
- How libraries can optimize the potential of digital technology and applications
- Why artificial intelligence matters and what libraries can do to incorporate AI in its offerings
