Knowledge Management’s New Renaissance - Solving Problems Today While Preparing for an AI Powered Future

Recorded - available as on demand webcast

Knowledge management (KM) and artificial intelligence (AI) have both gone through booms and busts—periods of hype followed by a sobering dose of reality.  After an “AI winter,” AI is currently enjoying an “AI spring,” because of a range of new applications driven by availability of training data, progress in algorithm performance, computing power and new funding.  There is also a growing understanding that cognitive applications of AI are trained in much the same way as humans.  The two work hand in hand.  Therefore, the same resources can be applied to preparing that information for AI that will solve problems even if AI is not your primary objective.  AI training content for cognitive systems such as knowledge retrieval bots, semantic search, intelligent virtual assistants, etc., should be designed to be reusable across multiple systems and platforms. 

A well-integrated knowledge engineering approach solves immediate knowledge access by humans, while laying the foundation for an AI-powered future. Organizations will compete on their knowledge about customers, products, solutions, and technologies embodied in AI tools and systems. Making the investment in the foundation for knowledge management will pay off in the short term, as well as prepare your organization for the future.

Knowledge Engineering, Knowledge Management and AI Assistants

AI assistants are a form of cognitive AI. They go by many different names. The different terms used to identify AI assistants are described below. The role of AI assistants is to support customers or employees as they carry out tasks. In some cases, for repeatable actions with unambiguous outcomes, a chatbot or AI assistant can fully automate interactions. In other cases, when the answer requires judgment and human expertise, the AI assistant can surface the necessary information to help the human solve a problem – whether for a customer self-service app or a customer service agent supporting an end user task. These virtual job assistants are designed to help customer support staff be more efficient, accomplishing the task more quickly and accurately with a consistent outcome.
