NISO Plus 2020

NISO Plus 2020

Baltimore, Maryland
February 23-25
Continuing in the tradition of the NFAIS conference which ran for 61 years, in February of 2020 we inaugurated the 62nd year and celebrate the merger of NISO and NFAIS with a new and different conference experience for the information community. Our goal was to bring all of the constituencies in the information economy together to generate discussion, seek common ground, identify areas of opportunity and provide a space and resources to work towards solving common problems.

The current point in time in the information ecosystem is one in which trust and facts and evidence are an increasingly precious currency. Healthy resilient ecosystems require cross-pollination, and this talk will discuss the importance of diversified and distributed infrastructures and how seemingly divergent stakeholders and models ideally interoperate in our print-optional post-truth world.
Data. People talk about data as oil, a natural resource that both fuels opportunity and devastates the planet. People talk about data with reverence, as though if we only had more data, we could solve the world's problems. The hype is profound, especially as the conversation turns to artificial intelligence. Data become legitimate because we collectively believe that those data are sound, valid, fit-for use. This means that there is power in collecting and disseminating the data, but there is also power in interpreting and manipulating the data. The struggle over data's legitimacy says more about our society - and our values - than it says about the data itself.
