Symposium on the Future of Libraries
Artificial intelligence is everywhere. Google Maps gives us directions. Alexa tells us the weather. Siri goes over our agenda for the day. Using only our voice, we can play music, add items to our shopping list, or find out movie times. Imagine a future where you can ask Siri if your library has a subscription to the New York Times, or tell Alexa to add a book to your reading list. Libraries have a unique opportunity to embrace artificial intelligence and to integrate services into these every day devices. This presentation discusses what a world with Library AI would look like and theorizes how to get there.
