B205 - Tools for Collaboration & Innovation

4:15 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.
Brian Pichman, Director of Strategic Innovation, Evolve Project
Tom Reamy, Chief Knowledge Architect & Founder, KAPS Group, LLC, USA & Author, Deep Text

Pichman discusses the power of Slack, a communication app with real-time messaging, archiving, and search for modern teams, which leads to collaboration, organization, and, most importantly, innovation. Slack is almost a replacement for email that organizes and categorizes information based on channels, with a ton of integrations to make your life easier and automate many tasks. Reamy discusses how AI and deep learning are hot topics these days and how most of the advances have to do with image and pattern recognition. He shares how taxonomies deal with much messier things—words and their multiple meanings. While taxonomies are relatively formal and static, AI thrives on dynamic and ever-changing structure. Reamy looks at some surprising ways that organizations are learning to take advantage of the strengths of each: Taxonomies can add new types and levels of structure to AI analysis of words and documents; AI can be used to help build taxonomies. The new AI techniques are essentially text mining on steroids. Get lots of examples and ideas combining the two fields of AI and taxonomy.
