17- How AI and Natural Language Processing Can Increase the Speed and Quality of Publishing
For quite a few years, artificial intelligence seemed like just another buzzy term with vague implications on the publishing industry. But now, publishers are putting it into action. Through a range of applications, AI and natural language processing are being used to streamline workflows, produce higher-quality content, and improve the author experience. Greater automation also frees up valuable time to focus on critical efforts requiring human analysis and subject matter expertise. Atul Goel of Cenveo will describe current uses and future applications of AI and NLP in scholarly publishing and how they’re combining to make research and publications more timely, relevant and useful.
