New Technologies: Implications for Companies and Employees
When it comes to knowledge management, there is a panoply of technical solutions. It ranges from databases, social media, to tools that function based on artificial intelligence. Which technology promises the maximum benefit? In the past recent years, companies are pointing to a clear trend based on their experience. Consequently many businesses are betting on self-learning technologies that make the know-how of the entire group available to each and every employee. In the context of digitization and "culture change" a new kind of collaboration and communication is made possible, all based on an innovative and revolutionary software called "Brain Technology". Insights will be given in how this works and the returns of artificial intelligence in combination with futuristic "Smart Workplaces".
Biology and Business: A Perfect Symbiosis
Starmind’s Brain Technology refers to the operating methods of the human brain, which has connections and dynamic combination possibilities between the individual brain cells. The Starmind technology learns independently and continuously who in the company has which know-how and experience, and creates an internal real-time network which links knowledge with people. As in the human brain, where the cells are linked to each other, new connections are created and impulses redirected in order to find the best result. Inspired by the latest developments in brain research, Starmind directs questions to the right experts along the same lines as the intelligent interconnections of brain cells.
Knowledge Management in the Storm of the Digital Revolution: How Artificial Intelligence is replacing Knowledge Management
In the past recent years, companies are pointing to a clear trend in the field of knowledge management based on their experience. Classical systems are failing due to highly complexity, low acceptance among employees and a costly implementation. More and more companies are now worldwide betting on a new technology, which empowers each and every employee to have the expertise of the entire group automatically. As part of the digital revolution, self-learning technologies enable a new level of cooperation and communication. Taking European and US companies as an example will give you insight into the functioning and returns of artificial intelligence in combination with futuristic "Smart Workplaces" and social collaboration.
