In the context of the “Learning within the boundaries” conference, which took place during the Readmagine week of 2019, Colin Lovrinovic presented a workshop on the prospects for AI within the Book Value Chain.
This video includes the workshop developed by Lovrinovic in the morning of June 5, 2019.
The conference began with a delimitation of the concept of AI, to separate it from some misconceptions, which derive from the hype moment and the omnipresence of AI in the media. Later, presented the results of an international study conducted by his team, in collaboration with the Frankfurt Book Fair, during the last two months, focused on the type of uses in the publishing sector and the real impact that AI has at the moment (The study shows that 25% of publishing companies use AI today).
Also, the expert provided some examples of cases of use of AI in this sector.
