The Association of Learned & Professional Society Publishers (ALPSP) is starting a new educational webinar series in 2019 titled, “What is Hype and What Has Value? Technological buzzword or industry innovation? Open Source Technologies.

Artificial intelligence (AI), blockchain and open source are terms frequently used, especially in headlines. Are they merely buzzwords or will they really disrupt the information management industry? This series of webinars will look at each technology in turn to separate the hype from the reality. By looking at examples of where these technologies are already being used in the industry, they will assess their potential for positive change as well as considering alternative courses of action.

Attendees can look forward to gaining an understanding of what these technologies really offer, the potential steps they could take to begin engaging and working with them, and the importance of considering how these technologies should fit within wider product, platform or technology strategies.

The first webinar is scheduled for Tuesday, February 5, 2019 at 10:00-11:00 EST. Click here to register.
