Libraries all over the world are increasingly starting to apply artificial intelligence in their work. AI technologies, most notably machine learning, are used to support different aspects of library work, including, creating metadata, enhancing logistical operations and supporting information discovery.

Join the RI-AI Meetup and Pirjo Kangas, Information Specialist from Humak University, Finland and Fulbright Finland Grantee 2019, to discuss recent developments with AI in Finnish libraries.

Pirjo is currently a Fulbrighter at the University of Maryland libraries. Her current research is focused on exploring AI initiatives in Nordic and US libraries.
