Poster #1 -- Intelligent Planning: Planning Strategically for Artificial Intelligence (AI): A library perspective

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is already influencing our daily lives and will continue to disrupt our lives in extraordinary ways. Telephone communication is one way of confirming this impact. Virtual assistants, Alexa, Google Assistant, SIRI, Amazon recommendation algorithm, voice and speech recognition are a few other examples of the impact of AI in our daily lives today. The promise of Neural Networks integrated with information technology and AI could offer powerful solutions to libraries. Integrated Library Systems and Discovery Systems could potentially provide intelligent synthesized answers instead of a results list of references and other materials. What are libraries doing to plan for this AI advancing digital world? This poster session will offer suggestions on how Collaboration, Space Planning, Hiring, Personal Privacy, Database licensing Contracts, AI machines, and Cloud Solutions can be considered when planning for artificial intelligence, and developing a vision that incorporates and develops what is already in the pipeline for AI. The goal of this session is to share ideas, and resources about initiatives some libraries are currently involved in to address the expanding utilization of AI. In addition, discuss possible strategic plans that can be incorporated in your strategic plans now to be proactive for the impending wave AI!
