How to use technology to unlock the value of your early-stage research

Session Abstract
In this session, discover why your institution needs an early-stage research strategy and the first steps you should take to develop it. Learn actionable insights into the ways AI and machine learning can help you unlock trends and discover signals in research as they happen.

Session Full Description
As the first place for the newest findings to be shared, academic conferences play an essential role in helping researchers discover and be discovered. However, the vast majority of these events are limited to the offline realm, meaning the invaluable early-stage research that is shared goes missing post-event and universities and institutions have no overview of where and when their researchers are presenting. In this session, learn why higher education should build an early-stage research strategy in order to organize, track, and promote their researchers’ pre-published findings and discover how to implement AI and machine learning to gain valuable insights into connections and trends within this content.
