Artificial Intelligence.

Exciting insights into the future of publishing.

Artificial intelligence, neural networks and deep learning are all well established in the creative industries and the publishing industry. New technologies help to analyse enormous amounts of text, images and metadata. This makes it possible to predict successful sales, generate summaries of the content of large text collections or generate automatic image descriptions. Frankfurter Buchmesse presents these new technologies and shows how the future is being shaped now.
