SIG AI Workshop @ ASIS&T 2021

Salt Lake City, UT (USA) / Hybrid 

Saturday, October 30, 2021, 8 AM-12 PM Mountain Time

This half-day workshop aims to support and advance an ASIS&T artificial intelligence (AI) community by connecting AI research and practice in library and information environments. We invite a broad range of participants who are engaged in developing AI applications and solutions, or study their impacts and/or interested in learning about the opportunities and challenges in AI research and development. Through a panel discussion, lightning talks, a brainstorming session, breakout group conversations, and a plenary discussion, the workshop will provide an opportunity for participants to obtain feedback on preliminary and ongoing work, identify pressing challenges and critical questions of AI in library and information environments, and develop new research problems and approaches.

This workshop is sponsored by ASIS&T's new Special Interest Group on Artificial Intelligence (SIG AI).
