Group Chat Transcript

[5/19/2020 11:00:20 AM] Tom Barfield: https://www.slideshare.net/SIKM/tom-barfield-navigating-knowledge-to-the-user

[5/19/2020 11:15:13 AM] Dennis L Thomas: How do you see Keeeb working in conjunction with SIKM?

[5/19/2020 11:15:35 AM] Retha: How does Keeeb handle something that fits into different categories? Do you have to duplicate it?

[5/19/2020 11:19:35 AM] Stacie Brenkovich: Are these all manually driven in terms of curation or can they dynamically populate based off tagging?

[5/19/2020 11:21:08 AM] Bill Kaplan -Working KnowledgeCSP: Is the glitch with the create ID fixed?  You go into a loop.

[5/19/2020 11:23:25 AM] Ann: Same thing happens for me.

[5/19/2020 11:22:15 AM] Dennis L Thomas: I like the idea of moving from folders to some other format? 

[5/19/2020 11:33:42 AM] Retha: Hi Tom, from a security perspective, how does it work ito 'mashing up' external content and content from my laptop into the Keeeb interface? Where is the index about content on my laptop hosted? On my laptop or on the Keeeb server somewhere? Does the index include my personal information or can I set the crawling to index only my Research folders?

[5/19/2020 11:36:08 AM] ivanbutina: @JC: I asked the same question to KM colleagues at the UN and then thought that WEF might be better positioned for what you are saying.

[5/19/2020 11:43:15 AM] Jean-Claude Monney: World Economic Forum Link to COVID-19 info. Look for the strategic Map. https://www.weforum.org/covid-action-platform

[5/19/2020 11:45:44 AM] Dennis L Thomas: It looks like we are talking mostly about data (documents, etc.), Because of the voulme, I think the next step is a concept driven indexing system. 

[5/19/2020 11:48:35 AM] Catherine Shinners: What about unstructured content in social conversations (in MSFT Teams, Yammer, other platforms?)  Social conversation # tagging   are those considered signals?

[5/19/2020 11:57:13 AM] Catherine Shinners: Climate change is also an important area.

[5/19/2020 11:57:18 AM] ivanbutina: Yes, great suggestion!

[5/19/2020 11:58:23 AM] Dennis L Thomas: What is the link to the knowledge technology topic??  I would like to attend. Thanks, Dennis  This was an interesting session. 

[5/19/2020 11:58:51 AM] ivanbutina: @dennis: you need to register to the Forum and then you get it

[5/19/2020 11:58:57 AM] Katrina Pugh: https://sites.google.com/view/2020-midwest-km-symposium/sessions

[5/19/2020 11:59:02 AM] Retha: Thanks for an interesting session.

[5/19/2020 11:59:09 AM] Katrina Pugh: Thank you, Tom!

[5/19/2020 11:59:34 AM] Jeff Cesari: Thanks Tom!

Thank you to everyone who participated in the call today!  My notes from the call are attached.  Here is a summary (detailed notes are attached).
Tom


Introduced first Community Champion volunteers
– Ivan Butina and Aprill Allen are our first champions! They will be champions for May and June.

Introduced the KM Collection to the community - This Collection is intended to help the KM professional community better find and use relevant information on knowledge and collaboration.  The group sounded very interested in giving the KM Collection a try.  Link to the Getting Started section of the KM Collection

Discussed ideas on “Navigating Knowledge to the User”

 

  • Examples of Navigating knowledge to the user
    • Ivan Butina shared ideas using Pocket that were considered by World Bank.  This sounded like a similar approach to the KM Collection
    • Jean-Claude Monney talked about the need for KM to help the world (specifically the World Economic Forum) synthesize and organize content related to Covid-19 (state of Covid-19, treatments, vaccination progress, cultural challenges…)
    • Adriaan Jooste supported Jean-Claude’s ideas on Covid-19.  Adriaan also shared ideas being implemented in Deloitte to provide consultants information at point-of-need via an internally developed solution called DFlow
  • Examples of signals we can tap into to intuit user needs
    • Dennis Thomas shared a vision he is working on to go beyond data/document classification to getting to semantic approaches.  We need systems that help us make sense out of the information we have.
    • Kate Pugh shared a vision around connecting independent information and data sources together – to derive new insights.  So much of what we have is in disconnected silos.
    • Jean-Claude Monney – Agreed that we are flooded with information and need systems to help us make sense of it.

From Kate Pugh: Several people mentioned they were interested about the open data around Covid-19. This is Yahoo’s open source data, API, dashboard and article collection. They have extensive data validation.

on your slide 4 there needs to be a whole new branch on response effectiveness.  we need collect intelligence on the impact of models (especially using new models that aren't really developed fully) media coverage, impact and effectiveness of lock downs, impact on social structures (i.e. that we discovered that schools prevent hunger in kids and detect child abuse, impact of worship practices, impact on socialization practices (dating, shopping, sports), economic impact (unemployment, production, etc.) hunt for teatments and vaccines, etc.  I think this is much more valuable intelligence than what's listed.....murray jennex
