Knowledge-intensive work is changing dramatically due to immense growth of information and digital (mobile) devices, advent of Web 2.0, linked open data, and other technological innovations. . The individual knowledge worker faces challenges such as judging information quality quickly, applying knowledge in new work situations, and being recognised in growing social networks.
This talk will focus on tools that support knowledge work (e.g. through context-aware recommendations), continuous professional competency development (e.g. by increasing awareness about learning opportunities), and organisational knowledge structure evolution (e.g. by discovering process models). Knowledge workers are enabled to effortlessly assemble their personalised knowledge workplaces and to seamlessly interlink them with enterprise knowledge spaces as well as with the web. The creation of such knowledge services requires translating web approaches to local organisational settings. I will present our research results of combining 'soft computing approaches' with semantic technologies and illustrate how I have translated them together with partner companies into value-adding products and services. The resulting knowledge services enable seamless integration of individual, community, and organisational learning.
