Research Paper Outline

Introduction Named after the Hawaiian term for “quick,” wikis are interactive Web sites to which users can contribute. Wikis Definition Ward Cunningham created the first wiki in 1995 when he wanted a quick way to publish information collaboratively on the Web (Leuf & Cunningham, 2001). Creating and Editing Content Using a wiki is simple and straightforward. Users can easily create new Web pages in wikis to add content. Organization and Navigation Due to its fluid and open structure, a wiki can quickly become disorganized. When navigating a wiki, the user must first realize that the standard menu structure found on most Web sites won’t be available in a wiki. Figure 1. Kmwiki » Power of questions. Data, Information, Knowledge, & Wisdom. By Gene Bellinger, Durval Castro, Anthony Mills There is probably no segment of activity in the world attracting as much attention at present as that of knowledge management.

Data, Information, Knowledge, & Wisdom

Yet as I entered this arena of activity I quickly found there didn't seem to be a wealth of sources that seemed to make sense in terms of defining what knowledge actually was, and how was it differentiated from data, information, and wisdom. What follows is the current level of understanding I have been able to piece together regarding data, information, knowledge, and wisdom. I figured to understand one of them I had to understand all of them. According to Russell Ackoff, a systems theorist and professor of organizational change, the content of the human mind can be classified into five categories: Ackoff indicates that the first four categories relate to the past; they deal with what has been or what is known. A further elaboration of Ackoff's definitions follows: Data... data is raw.

Ex: It is raining. Data, Information, Knowledge, and Wisdom. Computers are often called data processing machines or information processing machines.

Data, Information, Knowledge, and Wisdom

People understand and accept the fact that computers are machines designed for the input, storage, processing, and output of data and information. Screencast - Wikipedia, the free encyclope. A screencast is a digital recording of computer screen output, also known as a video screen capture, often containing audio narration.

Screencast - Wikipedia, the free encyclope

The term screencast compares with the related term screenshot; whereas screenshot generates a single picture of a computer screen, a screencast is essentially a movie of the changes over time that a user sees on a computer screen, enhanced with audio narration. Origin of the term[edit] In 2004, columnist Jon Udell invited readers of his blog to propose names for the emerging genre.[1] Udell selected the term "screencast", which was proposed by both Joseph McDonald and Deeje Cooley.[2]

Certain quoted material has been removed because its veracity could not be confirmed. Where do you find all the bits and pieces that comprise your business intelligence? Some of the more interesting snippets are probably trapped in thousands of e-mails languishing in cluttered inboxes or in archived instant messages that no one will ever bother to access again. And no doubt there’s a lot of useful information stuck in stagnant documents or databases, moldering away on the intranet. A Human Inventory. Print this article | Return to Article | Return to New software can help companies map their corporate DNA.Joseph McCafferty, CFO MagazineApril 1, 2005 In the late 1990s, consultants and academics began talking incessantly about the ascent of the "knowledge economy.

A Human Inventory

" This invisible system, they posited, encompassed the collective set of ideas and innovations generated by a global workforce. As the competition for customers grew more intense—fueled, in part, by the rise of electronic commerce—companies that mined the collective intelligence of their employees would come out on top. In this gray-matter economy, originality and fresh thinking would be king, and a company's most valuable assets would be those located in the body electric.

In evolutionary computation, a human-based genetic algorithm (HBGA) is a genetic algorithm that allows humans to contribute solution suggestions to the evolutionary process.

Human-based genetic algorithm

For this purpose, a HBGA has human interfaces for initialization, mutation, and recombinant crossover. As well, it may have interfaces for selective evaluation. In short, a HBGA outsources the operations of a typical genetic algorithm to humans. Evolutionary genetic systems and human agency[edit] Among evolutionary genetic systems, HBGA is the computer-based analogue of genetic engineering (Allan, 2005). One obvious pattern in the table is the division between organic (top) and computer systems (bottom). Looking to the right, the selector is the agent that decides fitness in the system.

The innovator is the agent of genetic change. HBGA is roughly similar to genetic engineering. Differences from a plain genetic algorithm[edit] Functional features[edit] Online Knowledge Markets (David Skyrme Associates) The period 1999-2000 saw a rapid growth in the development of B2B exchanges - online marketplaces where buyers and sellers trade a wide variety of goods and services.

Online Knowledge Markets (David Skyrme Associates)

While many may not survive, online marketplaces can play an important role in helping creating efficient and effective marketplaces. Online knowledge marketplaces are not as well developed as those for conventional products and services. Kmwiki » Power of questions. The Kaieteur Institute For Knowledge Management KNOWLEDGE MARKET.
