Artificial Intelligence for Genealogists - Steve Little

Steve Little explores how Artificial Intelligence is revolutionizing genealogy in his insightful presentation, "AI and Genealogy".   His workshop will include:

- An introduction to the power of AI, its limits and how it can be harnessed for genealogy research. 
- Demonstrations of how ChatGPT can enhance research efficiency, productivity, and creativity. 
- Examples of how several AI tools can be used to solve real world genealogy problems.
- Privacy and ethical considerations in the use of AI use. 
- An interactive Q&A. 

Artificial Intelligence has been in use for many years and is here to stay.  Learn how to navigate this new frontier in your genealogy research.

Steve Little, a seasoned professional with a rich and diverse career, brings his extensive experience and unique perspectives to his role as a professional genealogist. Steve's academic background includes a Bachelor's degree in English, followed by Master's work in Applied Linguistics, specializing in Natural Language Processing and Computational Linguistics, two of the key pillars of artificial intelligence.

His first career spanned over two decades, during which he crafted information systems for various libraries such as local, law, university, and state archives. Later, he transitioned to the non-profit sector where he has dedicated more than 15 years.

Slowly transitioning to a "retirement career," Steve found a new passion as a bivocational professional genealogist after decades of independent research, with special interests both in the use of AI research and in genetic genealogy within endogamous communities. This role merges his life-long interests in language, technology, and genealogy, and provides him with a unique vantage point at the intersection of these domains. His work in genealogy is informed and enriched by his extensive experience and deep love for these fields and for teaching.
