Access Innovations has been working with artificial intelligence since 1978, and we’ve learned a thing or two. One of them is to start with the basics, and taxonomy is a foundational technology for NLP, which supports AI. Join taxonomy experts Margie Hlava and Heather Kotula for a half day, lightning speed tutorial on all things taxonomy, including how it drives productivity for journal production and researcher output, how it supports member organizations in conference planning and business analytics, and more.
