Trends in Presentation & Delivery: Publishing Experts Speak


About the Webinar

The objective of this session is to gather input from consultants, content and technology providers as to their perspective on emerging technologies that might transform (or at least enhance) the presentation and delivery of information to researchers and scholars. What visions do they have for enhancing information environments and resources? What possibilities get them excited? What “Next Big Thing” do they see? It may be on the fringes now, but it might just as easily go viral!

Trends in delivering faster and more effective research discovery


Emerging tools for research collaboration and analysis are driving change in improving access to scientific knowledge. This talk will discuss trends in innovation to enhance the discoverability, integrity and reproducibility of research, and assess evolving analytics and metrics for monitoring impact.

3D and Virtual Reality


3D printing and scanning are just beginning to make their way into scientific discovery. 3D scanning is an efficient method for collecting data and statistical analysis of complex forms, while 3D printing has advanced medicine in areas such as prosthetics and pre-surgical models for planning operations. More recently, 3D is being used to view and understand complex scientific concepts in research articles. Along those same lines, immersive virtual reality (IVR) provides virtual environments for scientific visualization. The hope is that IVR will be used to visualize patterns, trends, and anomalies in data sets far beyond what can be seen with conventional 3D desktop displays, as well as to convey their meaning. Deni will provide a high-level overview of how these tools and techniques are currently in use and what the future may hold for their use in both scientific discovery and dissemination of research.

Content Presentation and Delivery to Support Artificial Intelligence


The assimilation, synthesis, and re-presentation of large amounts of raw knowledge and data is one of the hottest areas of information product growth – as demonstrated by Watson, Siri, Alexa, Cortana, Waymo, etc. But as “magical” as these systems can be, they are still highly dependent on the quality and consistency of the content and data that feeds their algorithms. This talk will explore where content and data publishers fit in the ecosystem of AI, and techniques publishers can use to make their content more desirable and effective for the machine “readers” of today and tomorrow.
