    Hi all, with ALA 2024 fast approaching I thought it might be helpful to share a big list of all of the sessions, presentations, etc... that will be talking about artificial intelligence at ALA 2024 this year! Spoilers: it's a lot.

    As a chair for ALA Core's AI & Machine Learning in Libraries interest group, I will mention that I'll be hosting a meet/greet for the AI & ML in Libraries Interest Group on Monday July 1 from 1030-1130.  Whether or not you're a member or just interested in the subject, we welcome you to join us for introductions, some group discussions, and the chance to meet others working in the AI & ML space at their respective institutions! While this meeting will mainly be socially oriented, there will also be learning resources on hand to help participants understand and work with some of the tools and techniques that AI & ML technology powers. Laptops are welcome but optional too, if you want some hands-on experience!

    The rest of the schedule follows. If you're one of the presenters, feel free to give an elevator speech about your session in this thread. If you know of a session that I missed, let me know and I'll add it!
