Knowledge on Demand: Knowledge and Expert Discovery
Mark T. Maybury (The MITRE Corporation, USA)
Abstract: This article outlines new technologies in the areas of automated expertise finding, expert network discover, virtual place-based collaboration, and automated question answering. We illustrate each of these areas with implemented and in some cases empirically evaluated systems. Collectively, these illustrate new methods for automatic discovery of knowledge, experts, and communities in an effective and efficient manner.
