Subject: Opportunity for machine learning and cross-disciplinary research We here at the University of Notre Dame are looking for sets of people to participate in a set of workshops on the topic of machine learning and discovery systems. Please consider completing our survey so we can: 1) learn about the community's experience, and 2) create a well-balanced set of workshop participants: http://bit.ly/2Rvm0q4 Here are a few more details: As part of its National Leadership Grants for Libraries Program, The Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) has awarded The University of Notre Dame a National Digital Platform Planning Grant to foster dialogue about the value of machine learning to facilitate automated metadata creation and classification in support of cross-disciplinary research.  Our grant website offers more detail about the project and will serves as a resource for our emerging knowledge as long as the project is active. As universities increasingly focus on cross-disciplinary research, the discovery ecosystem can only partially meet research needs because discovery tools do not semantically traverse multiple, disparate academic domains. The work to support cross-disciplinary research is a convergence of professional concerns expertise in classification is typically held by librarians, deep understanding of domain research areas is owned by scholars, and strong competency in computer learning and natural language processing is the specialty of computer scientists. We will invite domain experts, computer scientists and engineers, and librarians to attend one of four one-day workshops to raise awareness of machine learning applications and explore their possibilities in advancing cross-disciplinary knowledge creation based on user-centric design principles. The locations are selected to increase regional participation: 1. Monday, March 11, 2019, Notre Dame, IN 2. Monday, April 1, 2019, Palo Alto, CA 3. Thursday, April 25, 2019, New York, NY 4. Friday, May 31, 2019, Washington D.C. These one day workshops will comprise a series of brief talks which showcase machine learning applications in facilitating cross-disciplinary research, discussions based on interests/topics, and an opportunity to build a professional network. Our goal is to build a coalition for the advancement of knowledge classification practices into the era of machine learning and artificial intelligence. If you would like to contribute to the conversation, please complete the survey.  For even more detail, please see the website.  If you have any questions, then please feel free to contact me directly. 'Make sense?
