Event description
Artificial intelligence is everywhere but what could it in practice mean for libraries?

AI technologies, most notably machine learning, are used to support different aspects of library work for example to create metadata, enhance logistical operations or support the discovery of information.

This presentation will explore the possibilities of artificial intelligence for libraries focusing especially on case studies of AI in libraries in Finland.
