Academic Information Services in the Advent of Artificial Intelligence

By: LiLi Li  

Impacted by the digital revolution, academic libraries worldwide are in transition to change ways of information delivery and dissemination to support excellence in teaching and learning. To illustrate the impacts of Artificial Intelligence (AI) on future academic information services, this proposed presentation mainly focuses on the advance Artificial Intelligence (AI) in the fields of Deep Learning, Machine Translation, Roberts, and Voice Recognition, since they are driving forces to shape the next generation of academic information services in the future. The paper explores new challenges and opportunities for academic libraries worldwide in this section. In addition to general discussion of academic administration, budget control, staff training, etc., this proposed paper will explore technical limitations and legal impacts of the future Artificial Intelligence (AI) applications used in academic learning environments.
