SSP 2018 UK Regional Event

When:  Jul 5, 2018

Humans, AI, and Decision Making

Data and AI are two key buzzwords in the scholarly publishing industry right now.  But why?  And what are they?  Need some insight into how, as publishers, we can make use of all of this data to help us make better decisions?  Come along to SSP’s Summer UK Regional Event on 5th July in Clerkenwell, London to hear Isabel Thompson, Senior Strategy Analyst from Holtzbrinck (and winner of the SSP Emerging Leader Award 2018) give her insights into this area.  As well as polishing up on your knowledge, this is a great opportunity to network with other scholarly publishing professionals.  To accompany this great talk and networking will be beers, pizza and wine.  Who knows – we may even end up continuing the evening in one of the local pubs!   Please register and come along.

Lightning Talk: 
You Can Only Choose What You Can See
How in all situations online we're presented with just a few objects (papers, journals, articles) out of a massive catalogue and how that actively shapes our decision making.
