Symposium on the Future of Libraries
In 2018 the University of Rhode Island’s Library and Learning Commons opened an Artificial Intelligence (AI) Lab with the explicit aim of facilitating interdisciplinary learning on the topic of artificial intelligence and related social and ethical issues involving robotics, wearable technology, smart cities, and public policy. The Lab builds on URI’s success with __space.uri, an academically focused makerspace that provides shared access to fabrication, 2D/3D design, and virtual reality technologies. Through these and other initiatives, learn how URI Libraries are pursuing a new vision for the academic library.
