Artificial Intelligence has gained immense popularity in the recent decade. Machines are now able to mimic the human intelligence process with remarkable accuracy. AI has been widely used in many industries like recruitment, healthcare, education, and insurance to make day-to-day activities more efficient. In the last couple of years, there have been numerous ways in which the publishing industry too has been trying to integrate AI into their end-to-end process. Here are some of the ways that AI can assist in streamlining the publishing industry: Research: Publishing, especially in academia, involves tremendous amounts of research. An effective research paper needs [...]
Project cycles are crucial to all industries and managing them can be challenging. Preparing resources for projects requires more than just planning. One should be able to anticipate bottlenecks and eventually develop tactics to circumvent them. A project management tool or software offers a technology-enabled structure and organisation for project managers to gain control over a project and deliver it successfully. With the increasing demand for access to content via digital media and myriad of devices, the publishing industry has already been pushed into the digital space. Moving beyond digital outputs, publishers, in today’s competitive market, must gain a deeper [...]
Artificial Intelligence (AI) has been pervading the digital publishing space quite effectively of late, easing out labor-intensive processes and streamlining several services across the spectrum, Natural Language Processing (NLP) is yet another interesting phenomenon that has gripped the attention of those in the learning and digital publishing arena. With such innovation taking place at a rapid pace, what's in store for digital publishers and their audiences? Aiming for precision and context-sensitivity One of the primary issues with several ‘keyword-based’ analysis systems is that they lack precision. They often count words as ‘character strings’ so that analysis runs faster, but doing [...]
There’s a growing demand for digital content. The stats reveal it all: 4.1 billion internet users who are using a variety of devices to access all types of the available content on the Web. Given this increase in voracious readers, the digital content market is expected to move past the $500 billion marks by the end of this year. There is a dire need for end-to-end content solutions providers to ramp up their offerings in order to meet this need. Integra has, for the most part, anticipated these rapid changes, as far back as 1994 and began its foray into [...]

What are the core essentials that define an effective learning management system? Intuitiveness. Intelligence. Personalization. Let’s assume that for these aspects to come together seamlessly, we would need an augmenting force that is advanced in function, yet basic in form. An interesting possibility that offers promise to address this point is Artificial Intelligence (AI). AI could well be that catalyzing force to deliver an advanced level of sophistication to existing learning management systems. AI’s digital, dynamic nature opens opportunities for building personalized student engagement and immersive learning experiences that cannot be found in traditional e-learning environments. AI can be leveraged to [...]

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is particularly promising in that it looks to be the next big disruptor in the publishing field. Let’s take a closer look at how AI is going to create a strong impact on the publishing industry: Reading into the Future: Predictive Analytics By using complex algorithms and rigorous methods of current and historical data analysis to make predictions on the future of readers’ behavior, AI [...]
Do a quick Google search with the key words extended reality (AR/VR) and learning and development, and you will see an overwhelming number of articles promising a gazillion possibilities. Taken at face value this might lead to a superficial conclusion, but the fact that there’s so much potential in this area is indeed interesting and sparks further discussion. Barely three years ago, the sweeping phenomenon known as Pokémon Go had everyone raving about the power of augmented reality (AR). In mere weeks it had become a global phenomenon, with millions of active users taking to it quite naturally. So what [...]
