Newly released AI tools are poised to dramatically disrupt multiple industries, including healthcare and libraries. We’ll explore numerous healthcare applications that use AI, both current and in development – from a new industry-saving “bot workforce” to self-driving microscopes. In this special edition of Health Bytes, we’ll discuss the criticisms and concerns this technology is garnering and its potential effect on jobs, education, and libraries. With AI, comes the need for more student–centered learning and greater information literacy needs which libraries can provide. Please come and explore the potential benefits and drawbacks of AI. Make sure to bring questions for our interactive discussion for this special edition of Health Bytes!

Date & Time: October 18, 2023 at 10 a.m. CT

Registration and additional details can be found on the course page. Questions? Contact Brandon Kennedy, Health Information Strategist for NNLM – Region 3.
