The Machine and Deep Learning Research Interest Group is a forum for researching potential applications of Machine and Deep Learning in library science, including discussions, publications and outreach to the wider Library community. Its goal is to educate librarians on uses of the complex techniques of machine learning and to provide a space for critically thinking both about new applications, and about the ethical and social impact of these technologies , as the field rapidly expands in the coming decade.
Interest groups are completely self-initiated and not appointed by LITA officers. Membership consists of any number of participants and is open to LITA members. The leadership of each group is selected by the group.
The Machine and Deep Learning Research Interest Group was established in 2018.
Interest groups are open to all LITA members, and conference attendance is not required. To join a group, contact the chair, attend meetings, and get involved with their activities and discussions.
