Hardly a day passes when artificial intelligence is put forth either as a panacea for information overload, or a harbinger for the end of human society. Whether the topic is big data, scholarly communications, or researcher workflows, AI increasingly impacts our daily lives, and AI software tools are becoming readily available. What is AI? How will it affect scholarly production and knowledge discovery? Learn about the pros and cons of using automation to replace routine and repetitive research activity from experiment through analysis, and how AI could replace or augment cumbersome peer review processes. Discuss examples of how AI could augment our ability to produce new knowledge, and make connections between people and insights that were previously impossible.
