[Podcast] Artificial Intelligence Training for Information Professionals

podcast  |  digital disruption  |  digital transformation,  |  Artificial Intelligence  |  machine learning

For me, "Artificial Intelligence" used to conjure up images of the latest Sci-Fi movie or things like the talking car KITT from the 80's TV show Knight Rider. It wasn't until fairly recently that I began to see this shift from Sci-Fi movie topic to business value.

Techopedia defines Artificial intelligence (AI) as: An area of computer science that emphasizes the creation of intelligent machines that work and react like humans. Some of the activities computers with artificial intelligence are designed for include:

  • Speech recognition
  • Learning
  • Planning
  • Problem solving

As you can imagine the opportunities for AI to be applied in the workplace are seemingly endless. Which is why AIIM teamed up with Emerging Technology expert Alan Pelz-Sharpe to design a training course around the use of AI for information management.

The result was AIIM's Emerging Technology course on Artificial Intelligence. An on-line course designed to teach you:

  • Where AI, machine learning and deep learning fit along with related adjacent domains
  • The contrast between the regular programming paradigm with the machine learning approach
  • The common machine learning methods and their typical use cases
  • Machine learning applications for Information Management

To get a deeper understanding, AIIM's podcast host Kevin Craine sat down with Alan to chat about the development of the course and his thoughts on the future of AI in business. Also on this episode, Kevin gets an insider's view of the course when he talks to Lorelei Chernyshov, Director of Information Governance at Merrick Bank, who discusses her experience taking the AIIM Emerging Technologies course and how it inspired her to learn more about AI.
