Launch of the ORA – Artificial Intelligence (AI) collection

In October the ORA team launched a new Artificial Intelligence (AI) collection on ORA. The collection brings together research on Ai and Machine learning from within ORA. The works come across the divisions and there has been more than 80,000 views since the launch. To launch this wonderful resource Jason Partridge, Alessandra Vetrugno and Rachel Scanlon organised an event with knowledgeable researchers in the field of AI and Machine Learning at Oxford. There were 6 short talks from the varied fields of Chemistry, Medicine, Statistics, Politics and Policy, followed by a Q&A and a networking event where further research was displayed on posters. With speakers and audience there were 40 people in attendance and some useful connections were made. Thank you to all the speakers and attendees for making this such an engaging and productive event.

The Bodleian Health Care libraries host a range of training sessions on a variety of topics including Open Access, creating posters for conferences, copyright for research and teaching and more.
