Optimzing the Flow of Knowledge
flow of knowledge is central and critical to our information-based economy
just as surely as is the flow of energy. Knowledge must flow from machine-hosted
information repositories to the people who access and rely on them. Knowledge
must flow between systems and networks for these to interoperate effectively.
And knowledge must ultimately flow from human to human for computer-mediated
communications to earn their value. But each of these flows is, today,
critically suboptimal. Users are drowning in computer-based data and information
while starving for decisive knowledge. Lack of systems interoperability
conservatively costs the US over $100B annually while semantic interoperability
is considered one of the most daunting challenges we face. Each of these
is a breakdown in the flow of knowledge.
