Have you ever wondered how publishers and others in the publishing chain are using artificial intelligence technologies to automate their work? Recent developments such as large language models and generative AI technologies are revolutionising the industry, but they also raise new challenges and issues.

Join us for an exciting panel where we will discuss the current state of the technology, emerging practices and the needs and expectations of tomorrow. We’ll explore how publishers can take advantage of these technologies to improve their work while addressing the ethical and practical challenges they pose. We will also look at the future prospects for editing and publishing, exploring how AI technologies can help enhance products and services.
