Intellectual Property Management > Columns
Intellectual property/capital are terms used to describe intangible assets: the results of human thought and talent that have value and are original.

Managing and protecting that IP in a way that drives more value and stimulates sustainable growth is important for many organizations.

Thinking about KM differently

Moving to a push rather than a pull mentality simply means that we now have the technology to tag, manage, and interpret information automatically and near instantly—automatically pushing the right information to the right person (or application) at the right time.

Flipping data science

No matter how much "intelligence" is programmed into a computer, it will very likely never understand the results it produces. Doing so takes human cognition, intuition, judgment, and other ways we humans make sense out of data.

Ethical issues in AI and cognitive computing

Many innovations from the past needed the insight of entrepreneurs as well as technologists to change the world. That's also the case with machine learning and AI.

Crossing the epistemic divide

As the world races ahead, purely data-driven approaches will become less attractive. Instead, we need to start gaining a deeper understanding of how to bridge the great divide which separates the artificial and the natural.

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.
