Friday Forward

In our daily digest, we report quite regularly on change within the industry. Evolution, innovation, the topic permeates all that we do. For some, the rapid pace of this change is worrisome and even daunting. But for many, including us here at Pinhawk, we see it as an unending series of opportunities that present information professionals with the chance to continue to grow, reinvent themselves, and reinvigorate their value. It is all about how you approach the challenges that change presents. Today's highlights give us some perspective on a number of the transformations that are under way as well the creative solutions that are already being applied.

Artificial Authors

What happens when machines begin actually contributing to the creative process? At what point do they get credit for the role they played? Joe Hodnicki shares a very interesting article with us that sheds some light on this situation. While it may sound futuristic, the age of machine as creator is indeed upon us. Noting just one area of concern, the authors write, "The advent of such creative tools, and the corollary vanishing presence of the human in the creative pipeline, raises a number of fundamental questions in terms of copyright protection." Follow their thinking at: Authorship in the Age of Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence.

The Changing Nature of Change

In many ways, handling change is much like a game of chess. The key to victory is getting ahead of it and controlling the game itself. My LAC Group colleague Eleanor Windsor takes just such a strategic approach to change management. I was delighted to see an interview with her come across today's feeds and wanted to share her insights with you. Of tackling change from a project standpoint she says, "There are various approaches but the best change projects I've seen have been clearly planned and rolled out in a balanced way. You can read her insights and get her experiences in: Managing change projects with knowledge.
