Jane Dysart, KMWorld conference chair, and founding partner and curator of curiosity, Dysart & Jones Associates, provides a look at what's ahead for KMWorld 2021 attendees. The conference will be held November 15-18, 2021 at the JW Marriott Washington, DC
To help showcase advanced products and services, each year KMWorld magazine looks for offerings that are designed to help organizations derive greater benefit from their information, share knowledge efficiently, make better decisions, enable compliance, effectively support employees, and communicate seamlessly with customers.
Efficiency has been a big motivator for the use of RPA; in customer support applications, a goal has been to use bots to help agents reduce handle time for customer calls.
The importance of AI is underscored by forecasts for revenue growth. Worldwide revenues for the AI market, including software, hardware, and services, are forecast to grow 16.4% year over year in 2021 to $327.5 billion, according to the latest release of the IDC Worldwide Semiannual Artificial Intelligence Tracker. To help spotlight innovation in knowledge management, KMWorld presents the annual KMWorld AI 50, a list of vendors that are helping their customers excel in an increasingly competitive marketplace by imbuing products and services with intelligence and automation.
When companies continually expand the number of silos in their toolset, the preferred solution is not consolidation, but a better search tool that utilizes federated search technology

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.
Connecting the seeker to the information she seeks is not a new problem. Interaction design has been a stumbling block since the age of the card catalog.
In the field of knowledge management, of course, the idea of turning data into information into knowledge has been a foundation concept for knowledge managers. But frankly, the ability to achieve this alchemy of data to knowledge has not been broadly demonstrated in practice. A next generation information refinery is required to make something meaningful and valuable out of the raw data flying around the firm and throughout the internet economy.
