Marjorie M.K. Hlava and Heather Kotula, both of Access Innovations Inc., recently sat down for a conversation with Jill O’Neill, Director of Content, National Information Standards Organization (NISO).

Their conversation hearkened back to a talk given at the 2016 National Federation of Advanced Information Services (NFAIS) Annual Conference. Margie and Heather offered updates on where the information community stands with regard to artificial intelligence (AI).

When discussing categories of AI information processing, Margie highlighted some of the differences.

“There are those that are more for the general public and that tend to be more question and answer machines,” said Margie. “Alexa and Siri, for example would be very lightweight because they are answer machines. I don’t know if you have ever noticed, but if you ask a question today and they said ‘I don’t know’, you can ask a week later and they will know. Because they look at those questions and they find the answers. They learn in the general domain.”
