Pirjo Kangas, the author of the site AI for librarians, was a Fulbright scholar at the University of Maryland between September 2019 and December 2019. During the Fulbright, Pirjo worked with a professional project investigating artificial intelligence (AI) use cases in libraries.
Among the main questions behind the project were:
- How can libraries use AI (especially machine learning)?
- What should librarians know about AI, if anything?
- Should the libraries have a role in raising general awareness about AI and what could that role be?
