At a recent technology workshop we asked the attendees to outline what they thought that Artificial Intelligence and decision-support could do for them. The first response was that these technologies could be used to "make long meetings shorter". Far from being flippant this desire to ‘make meetings shorter’ shows the continuing relevance of the old management adage that “if you can’t measure it you can’t manage it”. It’s a self-evident truth that understanding what to measure and how to measure it is critical to the success of any business or organization.

The scholarly ecosystem has radically changed since the initial impact of digital technologies on our community in the early- to mid-1990s.

Alvin Toffler defined change as 'the process by which the future invades our lives'. Toffler's famous thesis is that too much change too fast results in a 'future shock' as we struggle to maintain the pace. It's interesting that one consequence of our rapidly changing world is a cultural shift that positions rapidity - of delivery, service and access - as an end in itself.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a ‘hot’ technology in many different sectors from Financial Services to Retail to Transportation. When a technological innovation becomes the stuff of widespread media attention, the mainstream definitions tend to become malleable, and terms that describe different processes or applications quickly become synonymous.
