Our heartfelt thanks to everyone who participated! Recordings now available below.
Description: Depending on the headlines on a given day, AI may seem like an overnight sensation decades in the making, a technology in search of a business model, the next step to the end of civilization as we know it. With so many different perspectives, it can be challenging to identify how AI will continue to affect scholarly communications. Will policy pronouncements make a dent in its use? Will it be just another tool used by students and researchers alike to streamline their process? Will we find ourselves in an “arms race” of AI and AI-detection as we try to figure out where we are going and where we want to go? Join us for a check in on this timely topic.
Moderated and Organized by: Heather Staines, Senior Consultant and Director of Community Engagement at Delta Think, and Gary Price, Editor of LJ’s InfoDOCKET and ARL Day in Review.

- 1:00 – 1:20 pm BMJ: “Analyze and Evaluate Real World Impact – Policy, Clinical Guidelines, and Point of Care data”
In a world of academic metrics, it can be hard to understand the real impact of research on society and patient outcomes. BMJ spent two years in market research and R&D, creating a solution to this problem and overcoming the challenges of information overload, time, and data quality. This work resulted in BMJ Impact Analytics, a new tool in collaboration with Overton that can help you quickly find, track, and share the real-world impact of research on health and social care. If your institution funds, publish, or produces research or policy, BMJ Impact Analytics can help you discover citations in clinical guidance and health policy worldwide. Join this session to learn how to better understand and analyze real-world impact with BMJ Impact Analytics.

- 1:40 – 2:00 pm ProQuest, a part of Clarivate – TDM Studio: interrogate content and interpret insights
Researchers in all areas of study increasingly need text data for their machine learning and data science work. TDM Studio opens up the vast potential of current and past text content from newspapers, dissertations, and government sources. In this session, we will present a brief overview of TDM Studio and show how libraries can work with students, faculty, and researchers to make the library a key piece in the AI-research framework.
