Findings from the Florida Artificial Intelligence Research Symposium (FLAIRS) Knowledge Management Track

Irma Becerra-Fernandez

This paper presents a summary of the invited presentations at the 1999 Florida Artificial Intelligence Research Symposium FLAIRS) Knowledge Management (KM) track. This track focuses on the effective design and development of state of the art KM applications. The goal of this track is to continue a long-term effort in integrating works that address important issues and current unsolved problems with regard to research in KM, and publicizing the contribution of AI in KM by maintaining contacts and advertising sharable resources (mailing list, archives, Web site, etc.). Furthermore this track attempts to determine what is common in all Knowledge Management domains so that the KM community can further this work. It has be en observed that KM Systems underway at most organizations fall into three categories: Educational KM systems, Knowledge repositories, and Problem solving KM systems. State of the art applications in all three categories were presented in this track. The applications presented included an invited presentation on a research tool to elicit and capture the knowledge of experts, a paper on the development of an application to identify experts in the State of Florida State University System, and a paper on the use of Conversational Case-Based Reasoning for Problem-Solving Knowledge Management Systems. Finally, the track included an invited presentation describing KM initiatives at NASA-Kennedy Space Center.
