Libraries 4.0: Harnessing the Power of AI to Create the Future of Libraries - Webinar (04/12/23)

Would you like to learn about the role of artificial intelligence (AI) in shaping the future of libraries? This presentation covers current and emerging AI technology trends, the benefits of AI for libraries, and the steps involved in implementing AI technology.

Participants will also be introduced to popular and reliable AI tools for libraries and have the opportunity to evaluate their suitability for specific library needs and goals. Some basic conceptual knowledge of AI is suggested, but not required.
