Throughout human history, few periods have experienced transformations as profound and swift as those driven by artificial intelligence (AI). As we navigate the digital terrain of the 21st century, the field of information science stands at the forefront of this revolutionary change. AI hasn’t just enhanced information science; it has fundamentally transformed it, leading to unprecedented innovation and possibilities. 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, with its roots tracing back to the earliest civilizations, has traditionally focused on the organization, retrieval and dissemination of information. The integration of AI has ushered in a new era of innovation, marked by increased efficiency, accuracy and scalability.

AI algorithms have significantly accelerated data curation and management, automating tasks like data classification, deduplication and normalization. Natural language processing (NLP) models extract insights from unstructured data sources, allowing organizations to derive actionable intelligence from diverse information.

As we navigate this AI-driven paradigm shift, it is crucial to be mindful of the ethical and societal implications of our technological advancements. By fostering a culture of responsible innovation and ethical stewardship, we can fully harness AI’s potential to advance information science while upholding values such as fairness, transparency and inclusivity.
