AI IN LIBRARIES AND PUBLIC INSTITUTIONS

LANGUAGE: GERMAN

DURATION: 1 hour + Q&A

TYPE:  Free of charge

Dear Library Professionals, 

 

On 9 November 2023 at 15:00 (CET) we are hosting a webinar on the use of Artificial Intelligence in libraries, archives and public institutions

 

As a provider of VoD services for the Association of Public Libraries of Berlin (VÖBB), we already use ChatGPT to index our content. 

 

On 9 November, we would like to give a general introduction to the topic of AI for libraries to anyone interested. We will explain how ChatGPT and similar Large Language Models (LLMs) work, we will explain terms like AI and generative AI and we will show what the practical applications of these technologies are. Then we will discuss how libraries can use this new technology. Finally, but only briefly, we will present our project AboutSomethinK or ASK live, i.e. our AI chatbot for public or academic libraries and archives. 

 

You are of course welcome to ask any questions about AI and ChatGPT; just ASK!
