How AI will change libraries

Ruggero Gramatica, CEO of Yewno

How can we transition from the Information Economy to the Knowledge Economy? Traditional approaches based on IT smart technology that leverage indexing, RDF, open link can only marginally tackle the issue. Leveraging the rising of AI and ML together with a new cognitive linguistic approach, I will present the results of applied research which has led to the launch of the first interdisciplinary knowledge graph. Based on the paradigm of conceptual spaces, it builds inferences across concepts and their relationships, always providing precise references to the original literature source and an explanation of the connection. Most importantly, not providing a direct solution to queries but rather leads to infer the reasoning around the answers.

Gramatica holds a PhD in Applied Mathematics, MBA from the University of Chicago Booth School of Business, an Engineering degree from the Politecnico di Milano University and a Certificate in Quantitative Finance.
