"Knowledge Graphs: Increasing Content Discoverability"

Speaker: Ruth Pickering - COO - Yewno

Broadcast using Zoom Webinars

All webinars start at 4:30pm BST sharp

While it’s important to capitalize on fresh content while it is novel and popular, in scholarly publishing there is great value in backlist titles. Information doesn’t lose value with age; it provides perspective, context and in many cases remains evergreen. So how can publishers make sure they’re capitalizing on their entire collections?

Artificial Intelligence offers an alternative and enhancement to traditional curation tools. Using Artificial Intelligence, publishers can make the switch from traditional keyword categorization to concept-based searching. Specifically, knowledge graph technology can identify the multidimensional relationships between concepts, enhancing metadata categorization and searching efforts. Simply put, this means never overlooking a title because it isn’t filed under the right keywords. It means optimizing the discoverability of publishers’ collections.

In this webinar, Yewno COO Ruth Pickering will explore how AI can help publishers use enhanced semantic metadata to better curate their collections and maximize resources.

"(Fireside Chat) Is the traditional

academic conference dead?"

Speaker: Sami Benchekroun - CEO - Morressier

23rd Sept 2020

Broadcast using Zoom Webinars

All webinars start at 4:30pm BST sharp

The current pandemic has wiped out almost all scheduled physical conferences in 2020 and 2021 looks far from certain. Hosted by ConTech.Live Sami Benchekroun will talk about the role of the traditional conference model.

 

The digital transformation of science and research means if not dead, then the value of the conference has been in decline long before the current COVID-19 pandemic.

 

In this fireside chat we talk about the loss of face to face events, the consequences and how scholarly communications needs to evolve and will look very different in the years to come.

"Auditing your output for diversity of representation"

Speaker: Nancy Roberts - CEO - Umbrella Analytics

Broadcast using Zoom Webinars

All webinars start at 4:30pm BST sharp

Following on from the devastating impacts of COVID on women and ethnic minorities, and the outpourings of rage over the death of George Floyd this year, issues of representation are more important than ever. The recent “Rethinking ‘Diversity’ in Publishing” report provided a searing analysis of the challenges faced by writers of colour in getting published, and the lack of diversity in authorship and output remains an issue across all publishing sectors.

The first step in addressing this is to audit the diversity of your content creators. Using AI-based name inference technology it is possible to infer ethnic and gender identity using author names. This can form the basis of understanding the diversity of your content creation pool, which can then be benchmarked against open data sources to drive out insights.

By taking a cold hard look at the realities of the data enables content creators to identify key issues and work backwards to remove the barriers which prevent output being more diverse and representative.

Takeaways:
- What to do if you “don’t have any data” (and why that’s never true!)
- How to create meaningful comparison datasets
- A few ideas on tackling root causes
