The Library AI initiative at Stanford, which began in fall quarter 2017, is a program to identify and enact applications of artificial intelligence —machine perception, machine learning, machine reasoning, and language recognition— that will help us make our rich collections of maps, photographs, manuscripts, data sets and other assets more easily discoverable, accessible, and analyzable for scholars.
