“AI Genealogy: The Basics and a Bit Beyond!” 

Join Steve Little for a comprehensive and forward-looking discussion on the role of Artificial Intelligence in genealogy. In this insightful talk, Steve will explore how AI tools are changing genealogical research and analysis. Expect to gain insights into both the triumphs and challenges faced in integrating AI into genealogy. Steve will highlight the practical applications, ethical considerations, and the ongoing journey of mitigating AI’s limitations.

Whether you’re a seasoned genealogist or new to the field, this talk promises to provide a rich understanding of AI’s role in genealogy, equipping you with knowledge and inspiration to harness these tools in your research journey. Get ready to explore how we got here and where we’re headed in the dynamic world of AI genealogy.

Steve Little is the AI Program Director for the National Genealogical Society and has lifelong passions for language, technology, and genealogy. Steve traces his deep roots to one Appalachian county, where, by 1820, all 32 of his 3rd-great-grandparents had settled—many even earlier than that. His passion lies in AI & genetic genealogy: with a keen interest in endogamy, pedigree collapse, deciphering multiple relationships, and an insatiable curiosity to explore beneficial uses and current limits of artificial intelligence in genealogy. Beyond genealogy, Steve wears many hats: he’s a husband and a dad, a Methodist pastor, and a Virginian.
