AI vs IA: How Will Humans and Technologies Interplay in the Future of Scholarly Communication?

Technology has both the potential to empower and to disenfranchise all the participants in the research lifecycle. We are undoubtedly at the dawn of a new revolution in technology – one that will fundamentally change how research is carried out and communicated. In this talk, we explore what the world could be like in the near future as the calculational and creative capabilities of artificial intelligence emerge. Will we overcome inherent biases in AI? Can an AI be smart enough to think creatively? Will intelligent augmentation expand our capabilities rather than artificial intelligence replacing them altogether?

These outputs can provide tremendous value for the scholarly community. In this session, a panel of industry experts will discuss how independent and society publishers are developing new products and experimenting in their space; will provide an update on preprint publishing and considerations for such products; and will preview a platform for early-stage research, including conference abstracts, posters, and presentations.

The Research and Publishing Experience – View from the Front Lines

This is a window into the world of those producing and consuming scholarly and professional content – academics and practitioners. Some sample topics to probe: How do you keep on top of the latest updates in your field? How “up to date” do you feel you have to be? Where do you do your reading and do you have any automated feeds? How do you choose where to publish? What is the user experience like? What are your biggest frustrations? What are timelines like? Do you use pre-print servers? How does your field view them? Are you active on social media interacting with published or WIP research?
