Semantic Knowledge Management and Technology Transfer

  1. 1. Semantic Knowledge Management  and Technology Transfer  Claudio Parrinello CEO, Innovatics
  2. 2. Motivation Organizational knowledge is an asset, built over time and evolving all the time. Intergovernmental Organizations can create tangible value for Member States  (and improve their public image) through Knowledge and Technology Transfer. Example: applications of CERN technologies to medical imagingHow to manage knowledge in order to facilitate technology transfer? UNOG Library Talks, Geneva, 06/05/2011
  3. 3. Knowledge Valorization (1/3)How can we make the most of organizational knowledge? Road Map to knowledge management:1. Sketch a map of your knowledge landscape, identifying those domains  which are most relevant to the organization’s mission. 2. Assess to what extent knowledge is explicit, i.e. recorded in documents  (scientific publications, patents, manuals, etc.) as opposed to implicit knowledge (in people’s minds).3. Identify all communities which could potentially benefit from access to  your knowledge (in‐house personnel, industry, general public, …) UNOG Library Talks, Geneva, 06/05/2011
  4. 4. Knowledge Valorization (2/3) Semantics: define a suitable knowledge representation scheme (ontology) which can record in a structured framework all the key features of your knowledge, e.g.Knowledge domains In‐house applications Industrial applications UNOG Library Talks, Geneva, 06/05/2011
  5. 5. Knowledge Valorization (3/3) (Automatically) classify documents into the ontology: • What is the knowledge domain? • What are the in‐house applications? • What are the potential industrial applications?Knowledge domains In‐house applications Industrial applications UNOG Library Talks, Geneva, 06/05/2011
  6. 6. Knowledge CatalogueDeliverable: a searchable knowledge catalogue which different communities canquery and browse according to different criteria…..In‐house view Industry view UNOG Library Talks, Geneva, 06/05/2011
  7. 7. Current project: ATLAS @ CERNPilot project towards an ATLAS Technology Applications Catalogue.Goal: enable industry to browse ATLAS’ know‐how and identify opportunities for Technology Transfer and joint R&D projects. UNOG Library Talks, Geneva, 06/05/2011
  8. 8. More on ontologiesOntologies are modular structuresCan begin by modelling a knowledge sub‐domain (pilot project),later enlarge the scope, and then connect the two ontologies.  Ontologies can evolve over timeWhenever new industrial applications are identified, these canbe added into the ontology. UNOG Library Talks, Geneva, 06/05/2011
  9. 9. SummaryTechnology (or, more generally, knowledge) transfer is about identifying who needs your expertise in the outside world and making it available to them. In order to maximize opportunities, an organization should• Keep a detailed, comprehensive and up to date view of its knowledge portfolio. • Gather and store information on potential external applications and identify  potential user communities.• Enable potential user communities to access and browse easily the knowledge  portfolio, with search criteria based on users’ needs. A knowledge management system implementing an appropriate semantic structure is instrumental in order to fulfil the conditions  above. UNOG Library Talks, Geneva, 06/05/2011
