Tech Trends for Libraries – Future Proofing from AI to Robotics

In a world of drastically changing landscapes where technology is often a vocal point, it is crucial for libraries to embrace new technologies and ensure growth for staff and the community.  Join Brian Pichman of the Evolve Project as he shares technology futures; how it impacts libraries and what should libraries do to be involved and be future proof.  From AI to robotics and the growing list of opportunities with these technologies can certainly help evolve library spaces from maker spaces to solve spaces.
