Registration to the first major international conference on artificial intelligence and machine learning in the international library community is now open.
As more and more memory and knowledge institutions’ collections become digital while continuing to expand, we are already observing significant consequences for their upkeep. For the past two years the National Library of Norway has experimented with Machine Learning (ML) for library purposes, named after the famous public librarian Nancy Pearl, our AI “Nancy” has worked both with cataloging and analyzing parts of our collection. Based on a limited set of experiments, it's already obvious that AI/ML represents a new level in library development. We will present some of the results of this work during the Fantastic Futures conference. The Fantastic futures-conferences, which takes place in Oslo december 5th 2018, is a collaboration between the National Library of Norway and Stanford University Libraries, and was initiated by the National Librarian at the National Library of Norway, Aslak Sira Myhre (pictured below, right) and University Librarian at Stanford University Libraries, Michael Keller (pictured below, left).
