AI, Blockchain and Open Source are terms which continually grab attention, but are they merely buzzwords or will they really disrupt our industry?  In a series of webinars we’ll look at each technology in turn to separate the hype from the reality. We’ll look at examples of where these technologies are already being used in our industry. We’ll assess their potential for positive change as well as considering  alternative courses of action.

Attendees will gain an understanding of what these technologies really offer, the potential steps they could take to begin engaging and working with them and the importance of considering how these technologies should fit within wider product, platform or technology strategies.

Dave Shumaker of Information Today reports that “rich programs and a major news announcement shared center stage at the NFAIS (National Federation of Advanced Information Services) 2019 Annual Conference, which was held Feb. 13–15 in Alexandria, Va.At the annual business meeting on Feb. 13, Deanna Marcum, president of the board of directors, announced the unanimous board approval of a merger with the National Information Standards Organization (NISO). The merger has also been ratified by the NISO board and hinges on a vote of NFAIS members. The combined organization will operate under the NISO banner, although key NFAIS programs such as the annual conference and the Miles Conrad Award will continue. (See What’s Up With the NFAIS-NISO Merger” for more details.)

Mr Shumaker continues his report with discussions of the conference keynotes and issues like the evolving roles in the scholarly communications ecosystem; verification and validation; Collaboration;  and a report on two annual events: the Miles Conrad Award and Memorial Lecture and the Startup Challenge
