Discoverability in an AI world

Abstract
The information community is increasingly reliant on AI-driven search engines to enable our content to be discovered by users. Our speakers will highlight what this means for content creators, curators, and users alike — in terms of both challenges and opportunities for us all.

Andromeda Yelton will be speaking, while Christine Stohn and Karim Boughida will be available for questions during the discussion period.

NISO Plus 2021 was our first virtual conference, held in February of 2021. A global undertaking, NISO Plus 2021 had over 800 participants from 26 countries come together to have a conversation about the state of the information ecosystem. Here you'll find both the presentations and discussions from that event.

I'm a software engineer and librarian investigating humanistic applications of machine learning, and an adjunct faculty member at the San José State University iSchool, where I teach about AI. In the past, I've written code for the Berkman Klein Center for Internet & Society, the MIT Libraries, and the Wikimedia Foundation, among others. I was President of the Library & Information Technology Association. Talk to me about AI (how it works, what it means, what it can do in libraries, and its dark side), alternative education, knitting, your pets and mine.
