In some ways, knowledge management and the maturing technologies of AI and machine learning (ML) are a perfect fit. AI and ML have voracious appetites for data and knowledge but are also quite good at identifying specific knowledge that someone is searching for. In a 2019 study by HDI, the most common reasons for a knowledge management program not meeting an organization’s expectations were "We can't get users to adopt it" and "It's a lot more work than we anticipated."

Traditionally, we’ve built a portal, connected it to a searchable collection of articles and some FAQ, and expected users to find the answers to their own questions. Bringing AI and ML into the picture can help address these issues, making your knowledge program far more effective and efficient. In this session, Roy Atkinson will clarify:
  • The relationship between KM and AI
  • How AI and ML can improve the availability and consumption of knowledge across the organization
  • Why and how contextualized support can save time and effort for both customers and employees
  • The kinds of tools that are readily available in the market
