Behind the scenes in search

New solutions are emerging that help connect searchers with content, but established principles also need to be followed. "In the past, users might go to a company's home page and look for information, but now, they are asking questions like what time a store in a particular location is open," noted Erin Jaeger, director of product marketing at Yext. Ideally, onsite search should be integrated with enterprise systems that also help pro­vide as complete a picture of the user as possible.Read More >>

Perspectives on Knowledge

How the Internet is changing knowledge, society, relationships and communication.

Perspective on knowledge: When knowledge isn’t enough

If knowledge is a tool intended to enable us to make decisions that are more likely to protect us and advance our shared interests, then it is clear that knowledge can fail us. Each domain has at least informal rules about what counts as evidence.Read More >>

Perspective on knowledge: Computers, Internet, AI

If the early computers reinforced the existing world-view, the Internet upended worldview after worldview. We learned that control doesn't scale: If you want to build something really, really big, you have to get rid of the centralized management functions. We learned that customers joined in conversational networks know more about a business' products than the business does. We learned what a democracy is like when everyone truly has a voice, even when those voices are telling lies and tearing down democratic institutions. Read More >>

Perspective on knowledge: Signs, causes and machine learning

Machine learning systems can look at data without instructions about how we think the pieces go together. The AI finds correlations and assembles them into webs of connection.Read More >>

From just-in-time to just-ahead-of-time

Through our many decades of research into the knowledge sciences, we've determined that if AI is ever going to live up to its promises, it needs an architecture that integrates three levels of functionality: memory, awareness and anticipation.Read More >>

A deep future approach to KM

We're familiar with the near-term portion of the time spectrum—from femtosecond lasers used in eye surgery to high-frequency trading in milliseconds on the major securities exchanges. Unfortunately, the extreme opposite end of the time spectrum, the "deep future" receives little if any attention. Decisions in fields such as genetic engineering, nuclear energy, geopolitics and the like can have serious implications for human civilization. But the impact of those decisions might not become apparent for many thousands of years and hundreds of generations.Read More >>

Selecting the Right CMS Platform for Your Business: Understanding the Benefits of Coupled, Decoupled and Headless CMS Solutions

The CMS space has gotten very crowded and confusing for buyers. Each CMS architecture has pros and cons and some are more appropriate in specific environments than in others. If it's time to redesign your digital properties, it's important to keep in mind the differences between coupled, decoupled and headless CMS. Considering the points above will help you determine which type is right for your business. Choosing the right structure will ensure you not only get what you want, but also what is best for your entire team—editors, developers, designers and marketers alike. December 03, 2018

Fueling Sales and Marketing with Presentation Management

Large organizations use presentations to drive their business. Whether it be sales team members pitching potential prospects or internal marketing documents used to inform employees about brand updates, presentations are crucial to the success of every business. A sound presentation management strategy optimizes all stages of the workflow associated with presentations, and lets executives and managers view the entire process as a "presentation loop."

Why your DAM Needs an Asset Librarian

Across industries, from media and manufacturing to oil exploration and law, businesses have requirements that librarians are best suited to meet. Organizations want employees, authorized third parties and clients to easily access corporate assets (e.g., media, documents, designs, graphics, etc.) through a DAM system. Making that happen requires knowing how to sort and classify content, create, manage and govern metadata and construct workflows. October 24, 2018
