AI Special

Welcome to our first AI special. Ever since OpenAI released ChatGPT to the general public in November 2022, publishers have been talking about little else.

Much has been written about the threats AI poses to the publishing industry but this special feature focuses on the positive aspects of AI, on the substantial opportunities it presents to publishers to improve and streamline their processes and to enhance and extend their content offering into previously unimagined areas.

Running through the thirteen articles in this special feature, by specialist suppliers and publishers, there is a real sense of excitement about AI’s transformative potential and the possibilities that lie ahead for those publishers that make the effort to engage with this incredible technology.

Join our contributors on Wednesday, 26 June for an ‘AI Special – Q&A’ webinar when you will have the opportunity to put questions to them.
