Kudos Announces Launch of “Artificial Intelligence Knowledge Cooperative”; New collaboration features AI research published by ACM, AIP Publishing, ASTM and IOP Publishing
Kudos, the research presentation platform, today announced the launch of a new showcase and associated outreach campaign to help the public, media, industry, policy makers, educators and others to understand the current and future role and capabilities of Artificial intelligence.
Kudos created the Artificial Intelligence Knowledge Cooperative with Impact Science, part of Cactus Communications (CACTUS). Sponsors announced today include the Association for Computing Machinery, AIP Publishing, ASTM International and IOP Publishing.
Sponsors select their most relevant, recent or significant AI content which will be summarized by Impact Science’s professional science writers, and featured and promoted by Kudos’ communication experts. The stories already on the platform cover topics ranging from “smart industry”, which uses machine learning to streamline operations, to how neural networks reduce the use of fossil fuels.
“From chatbots to autonomous vehicles, we are increasingly aware of AI in everyday life. But the more it spreads, the more people wonder about its operation, its application and its reliability,” says Charlie Rapple, co-founder of Kudos. “Many of these questions are already being answered in field research. The scholarly communications sector has a role to play in helping a wider audience find and understand credible information about this most powerful and ubiquitous technology.
“The knowledge cooperative model provides a way for publishers to collaborate to solve the problems of our time,” adds Nikesh Gosalia, Senior Vice President – Global Academic and Publisher Relations at CACTUS. “Working together provides greater visibility and greater impact; readers benefit from professionally written research summaries that highlight real-world applications and implications of science.
“As the world’s largest educational and scientific computing company, ACM is committed to publishing the highest quality research in key areas such as AI and to amplifying the voice of computing professionals,” says Scott Delman, Director of Publications at ACM. “An initiative like this allows us to do both: take on an area of great research and general interest to help more people understand the positive impact that computing can have and the many ways it improves our lives.”
“We have participated in previous Kudos and Cactus Knowledge Cooperatives, and are excited to use this new showcase to help expand readership of our AI content,” said Penelope Lewis, Publishing Director at AIP Publishing. “The AIPP is by nature a collaborative organization, and the cooperative knowledge model is a great extension of our belief that communities with a common goal have much to gain from working together.”
“ASTM International’s more than 33,000 global members develop standards that are used by many industries around the world. It is important for ASTM to recognize the growing prominence of AI in the standards, journal articles and books our members create and support,” says Kathy Dernoga, Director, Books and Journals, ASTM International.
“AI may be the hot topic, but talking about it widely doesn’t mean it’s fully understood. ‘AI could enable,” says Tim Smith, portfolio development manager at IOP Publishing. “There are many examples of the positive effects of AI – from reducing power consumption to being much more efficient in modeling computing, to accelerating research breakthroughs by guiding more effective use of our “human intelligence”. It’s important to share these benefits in a way everyone can understand, and this plain language initiative from Kudos and Impact Science is the perfect way for us to do that.
