Stanford Libraries Will Host “Fantastic Futures 2019: AI and Libraries” Conference in December
The two-day “Fantastic Futures 2019: AI and Libraries” conference is scheduled to take place on December 4 & 5, 2019 at Stanford University.
From the Conference Web Page:
That role will libraries play, as trusted sources of information, when more and more of the information we consume is algorithmically generated? How will library values of neutrality, privacy, authority and preservation help shape AI, and how will libraries apply them in a changing landscape? How can libraries leverage AI to transform and elevate their services beyond 20th century modalities?
The Fantastic Futures 2019 conference is a collaboration between Stanford University Libraries and the National Library of Norway, and building on the breakout conference of the same name in Oslo 2018.
Bryan Catanzaro, Vice President, Applied Deep Learning Research, NVIDIA will keynote the conference.
