Jean shares her impressions of this most recent AALL Annual Conference.
“The recent AALL Annual Conference in Austin was “hands down,” the most exciting AALL Program I have ever attended. The programs were great – it was often hard to decide which panel to attend. I found my own panels (Moneyball Analytics and Hits and Misses in New Products) up against programs that I hated to miss (the Innovation Tournament and an “all star” CEO panel (Fastcase – Walters, Casetext – Heller, Ross – Aruda, Ravel – Lewis) on AI and analytics prodded and provoked by moderator Prof, Susan Nevelow Mart.”
