In the annals of human history, few epochs have witnessed transformations as profound and rapid as those catalyzed by artificial intelligence (AI). As we traverse the digital landscape of the 21st century, the discipline of information science finds itself at the heart of this revolutionary upheaval. From data curation to knowledge discovery, AI has not merely augmented but fundamentally reshaped the contours of information science, propelling it into uncharted territories of innovation and possibility. The Scholarly Kitchen brought this important topic to our attention in their article, “The Impact of AI on Information Discovery: From Information Gathering to Knowledge Application.

Information science, traditionally concerned with the organization, retrieval and dissemination of information, traces its roots to the dawn of civilization. The marriage of AI and information science heralded a new era of innovation, characterized by enhanced efficiency, accuracy and scalability.

AI algorithms have vastly expedited the process of data curation and management, automating tasks such as data classification, deduplication and normalization. Natural language processing (NLP) models facilitate the extraction of insights from unstructured data sources, enabling organizations to derive actionable intelligence from disparate sources.

As we navigate the complexities of this AI-driven paradigm shift, it is imperative to remain vigilant to the ethical and societal implications of our technological endeavors. By fostering a culture of responsible innovation and ethical stewardship, we can harness the full potential of AI to advance the frontiers of information science while upholding the values of fairness, transparency and inclusivity.
