The Urban Libraries Council announced the following:
The Urban Libraries Council (ULC) and the University at Albany’s Center for Technology in Government (CTG UAlbany) are partnering to examine how libraries can empower communities to better understand Artificial Intelligence and ensure its ethical design and application. This three-year research project, funded through a grant from the Institute for Museum and Library Services, will include surveys and interviews with ULC member libraries, case studies, a comprehensive report and a practitioners’ guide for libraries. ...
CTG UAlbany’s research will address three questions:
- What role may public libraries play in increasing knowledge about AI in the community?
- How may public libraries foster inclusive civic engagement in AI initiatives?
- What are the opportunities, threats, benefits, and challenges of public libraries leading inclusive civic engagement in AI initiatives?
