I'd just like to say that Carl Grant, who heads up the University of Oklahoma Library system, is a gentleman and bona fide scholar of AI/ML. His teams are doing fantastic work. I'm sure he'd be amazing to work with.

Very interesting! Not many librarians have the phrase "artificial intelligence" in their title. I wonder, group, how many of us are worried about the application of AI in our workplace? A long time ago I wrote expert systems applications, in the hopes of supplementing the reference interview process. IMHO, AI does have a place in our profession, but not as a replacement but rather as as addition. --Eric Morgan (University of Notre Dame)
