Reimagining Libraries for the AI Era with Ciaran Talbot


Audience Suitable for allUniversity students/staff

AI: everyone’s talking about it.

And many people are using it – yet only a handful know how it truly works!

Join Ciaran Talbot, Associate Director for the Directorate of AI and Ideas Adoption at The University of Manchester Library, as he explores the exciting ideas, difficult challenges and practical work being done at the Library with AI – and the eye-opening possibilities it brings.

Artificial intelligence and machine learning have deep roots here at the University through the pioneering work of Alan Turing and others, and we’re leading the way on building on that impressive legacy.

How can we use AI to reimagine what a library will be for the next generation of students, researchers and public at large? Will there be robots roaming the stacks in the ‘LibrAI 2.0’?

Come along to find out!
