Disruptive Technologies and New Skillsets  in Library 4.0 (online)

Artificial Intelligence (AI), Augmented Reality (AR), Virtual Reality (VR), Internet of Things (IoT), drones, robotics and blockchain technology, are all examples of fourth industrial revolution (4IR/IR 4.0) technologies which have impacted how we live, learn, work, play, and interact with each other. Libraries, as early adopters of technologies, have an important  role in using these technologies to add value to and improve services provided.

Target audience

This course is intended for information professionals who would like to learn about 4IR/IR 4.0 disruptive technologies, the adoption of these technologies to improve information services, and the skillsets required to function effectively in a rapidly changing  21st century information environment.

Structure

During this  workshop ( 2 x 3 hours) our lecturer will guide you through the course material in an interactive and practical way to ensure that you not only get the required knowledge and insight but develop your skills as well.
