WCGS Monthly Meeting - The Impact of Artificial Intelligence on Genealogy Today and Into the Future (Monthly Meetings)
Presenter: Rob Richardson
Surprise! Artificial Intelligence Is Already Working To Help You In Genealogy.
And there's much more to come: From solving brick walls to recreating ancestors’ images
Our speaker Rob Richardson has been closely following the rapid development of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and how it’s helping researchers resolve and find meaning in huge repositories of data. Hmm, “finding meaning in big data”, that sure sounds like genealogy doesn’t it. And sure enough, AI is beginning to make inroads at the large on-line genealogy websites to make your work more accurate and easier to do.
In his presentation Rob will provide a survey of what’s happening right now at those large sites and more importantly he will take a look at what’s on the horizon and beyond -
- Making old photos look like they were taken yesterday,
- Performing data analyses that will break through brick walls for you,
- Even writing family histories for you that will read like they were written by David McCollough or Stephen Ambrose.
But big questions remain. Will AI prove too capable, depriving the genealogist of the thrill of hunt and the satisfaction of a job-well-done? Maybe. The promises and pitfalls of AI - now and in the future will all be discussed and assessed in Rob’s presentation.
