NFAIS Forethought Webinar, Artificial Intelligence #2 – Processes for Media Analysis and Extraction - May 20, 2020

In order to implement artificial intelligence in a meaningful way, organizations with large collections of data must ensure that they have the support they need for processing, analyzing, and extracting meaningful data. Typically, this involves working with a technology provider with AI expertise. But what do you need to know before engaging their services? This event will help you answer this question by learning from the experience of others, as speakers from a variety of backgrounds address the practical needs, barriers, and benefits of embarking upon this process. Confirmed speakers in this event include Jake Zarnegar, Chief Business Development Officer, Silverchair; Ruth Pickering, Co-Founder and Chief Business Development and Strategy Officer, Yewno; and Stuart Maxwell, Chief Operating Officer, Scholarly iQ.
