Summary

Knowledge science is an emerging discipline resulting from the demands of a knowledge-based economy and information revolution. Explaining how to improve our knowledge-based society, Knowledge Science: Modeling the Knowledge Creation Process addresses problems in collecting, synthesizing, coordinating, and creating knowledge. The book introduces several key concepts in knowledge science:

  • Knowledge technology, which encompasses classification, representation, modeling, identification, acquisition, searching, organization, storage, conversion, and dissemination
  • Knowledge management, which covers three different yet related areas (knowledge assets, knowing processes, knower relations)
  • Knowledge discovery and data mining, which combine databases, statistics, machine learning, and related areas to discover and extract valuable knowledge from large volumes of data
  • Knowledge synthesis, knowledge justification, and knowledge construction, which are important in solving real-life problems

Specialists in decision science, artificial intelligence, systems engineering, behavioral science, and management science, the book’s contributors present their own original ideas, including an Oriental systems philosophy, a new episteme in the knowledge-based society, and a theory of knowledge construction. They emphasize the importance of systemic thinking for developing a better society in the current knowledge-based era.
