Libraries and their partners have experienced various permutations of “open” (e.g., content, infrastructure, technology, standards), strategically leveraged in ways that strengthen and sometimes weaken commitments to promoting a more equitable and just world. True to type, the nature of “open” AI is hotly contested in popular press, academic discourse, between companies advancing products, and in State, Federal, and international regulatory spaces. Assessing various permutations of open AI practice and strategy is a necessary precondition of defining and advocating for a version of open AI that best aligns with core missions. Cohering advocacy efforts in turn provides opportunities to prioritize open AI work streams that libraries are - or could be - well positioned to deliver on in combination with a diverse set of partners. This talk will describe states of open AI as they are, as they could be, and possible roles that libraries and their partners could play in the work that lies ahead.
