1817 -
181701 - Follow up ref SDS 56 0000, ref SDS 54 0000.
181702 -
181703 - Henry submits research today showing time is an important organizing
181704 - facor for KM. ref SDS 0 C24O  He asks for comments on using KMI as a
181705 - candidate Collaboratory to get the OHS project started.  Review shows
181706 - KMI is an academic research effort funded by $10 - $14M for about 6
181707 - years. ref SDS 0 5ES2  There is no evidence KMI has developed KM, nor
181708 - that it has put forward an agenda for moving beyond IT. ref SDS 0 SR4I
181709 - Henry points out there are a lot of organizations that are selling KM,
181710 - and it is difficult for a webmaster to choose which system to adopt.
181711 - ref SDS 0 L53H  The record on the OHS/DKR project indicates SDS is the
181712 - only system that supports KM. ref SDS 0 AT5J  Without using SDS, it is
181713 - difficult to manage a complex record.  SDS design based on context is
181714 - supported by additional research Henry submits on Silva Rhetoricae.

182102 - Knowledge Media Institute (KMI) $14M to Do Research
182103 - Web Publishing Offers Opportunities for KM, Learning, R&D
182104 -
182105 - Received ref DRT 1 0001 from Henry van Eykan evidently responding in
182106 - part to a recent letter from Jack Park, that is appended to Henry's
182107 - letter today.  ref DRT 1 0002
182108 -
182109 - Henry feels work by KMI may support Knowledge Management, stating....
182110 -
182111 -    This site (KMI) certainly fascinates me. We see here an integration
182112 -    of knowledge management and learning along the full gamut of R&D
182113 -    and application.  One wonders how the work of Bootstrap volunteers
182114 -    and SRI may fit in or relate to all this. There seems to be a lot
182115 -    of experience and momentum there. The D3E format for publishing on
182116 -    the Internet does seem a bit bewildering at first sight, but still
182117 -    seems to be worth considering. (If only I could cope with the
182118 -    explosion of things to be comprehended.), ref DRT 1 5X5N
182119 -        ..
182120 -        This seems to express a misperception that does not
182121 -        reflect the distinction between information and knowledge.
182122 -
182123 -        If KMI can support KM, then by definition, see POIMS,
182124 -        ref OF 1 1850, KMI can strengthen learning, R&D and all other
182125 -        fields, as alphabet technology does, because when the core of
182126 -        knowledge work is improved, it improves all knowledge work.
182127 -
182128 -        Need explanation of "Knowledge Management" that Henry draws
182129 -        from reviewing KMI resources on the Internet.
182130 -            ..
182131 -            KM is defined in POIMS, ref OF 1 5820, and appears to
182132 -            be a secret of SDS, as set out in the record on 000425.
182133 -            ref SDS 18 0480
182134 -
182135 -            For example, KMI says below that "Knowledge-intensive work
182136 -            at its core is the creation, annotation and discussion of
182137 -            documents." ref SDS 0 J58M  KMI provides no evidence nor a
182138 -            theory of knowledge, nor an architecture of human thought,
182139 -            to support this proposition.
182140 -
182141 -            KMI offers no work product showing it can produce useful
182142 -            "knowledge" by improving document management.  POIMS moves
182143 -            beyond documents to Knowledge Space. ref OF 1 1107  This
182144 -            record and others on the Internet is proof of concept, as
182145 -            noted by Jack Park on 000426. ref SDS 19 3315  On 001017
182146 -            Pat Lincoln at SRI advised that SDS is a unique solution.
182147 -            ref SDS 39 VY4J
182148 -
182149 -        Jack Park submitted a letter commenting on Henry's interest in

182169 -
182170 -        ....which says....
182171 -
182172 -            KMi researchers have developed a variety of tools for the
182173 -            representation and manipulation of knowledge. These range
182174 -            from the high level conceptual modelling language, OCML,
182175 -            through the knowledge engineering environment, Ousel, to
182176 -            the cognitive modelling environment, HANK and the web-based
182177 -            ontology editor, WebOnto.  These tools provide the means
182178 -            for developing formal models of a domain, which can then be
182179 -            used to support intelligent knowledge retrieval, to provide
182180 -            reasoning facilities and to support constructive theories
182181 -            of learning (i.e., students can learn about a domain by
182182 -            trying to model it using conceptual modelling tools). In
182183 -            addition, much of this technology is used in our knowledge
182184 -            management projects to support organizational learning and
182185 -            shared domain construction.
182186 -
182187 -        "Knowledge" is not defined.
182188 -
182189 -        KMI proposes applications in education, medical, R&D, etc., as
182190 -        Henry notes in his letter today. ref DRT 1 5X5N  KMI provides
182191 -        no indication of work product showing actual use.  No scenarios
182192 -        are provided showing how KMI improves medical, R&D, or
182193 -        anything.
182194 -
182195 -        For example, a scenario for improving....
182196 -
182197 -           •  Medical practice and patient assistance is in the record
182198 -              for 990625. ref SDS 7 0001
182199 -
182200 -           •  Scenario showing SDS for daily management. ref SDS 4 0001
182204 -
182205 -           •  An example of fixing the car is in the record on 990507.
182206 -              ref SDS 6 0001
182207 -
182208 -        Each of the above examples shows how learning, pedagogy and
182209 -        didatic structure is inherent in SDS work product, because
182210 -        "learning" entails discovering and remembering connections of
182211 -        cause and effect, as discussed at University of Santa Clara on
182212 -        951012. ref SDS 2 R16G
182213 -        ..
182214 -        KMI's claim to accomplish "intelligent" retrieval needs
182215 -        an example showing "knowledge" is retrieved, rather than more
182216 -        information, as discussed on 000517? ref SDS 24 0785
182217 -
182218 -        If KMI supports organizational learning and "shared domain
182219 -        construction," (sounds like the engine idea Jack Park proposes
182220 -        to identify and assign subjects and links automatically, see
182221 -        most recently on 010223, ref SDS 55 3RKS), as claimed, where is
182222 -        the example of KMI's work showing what was learned from the
182223 -        last email, phone call, meeting, trip to the bank, visit to the
182224 -        doctor, or shopping at the grocery store?
182225 -        ..
182226 -        KMI continues....
182227 -
182228 -            AKT will look at all aspects of knowledge management from
182229 -            acquiring and maintaining knowledge to publishing and
182230 -            sharing it. We intend to address all these closely related
182231 -            issues in an integrated approach, making use of recent
182232 -            developments in artificial intelligence, psychology,
182233 -            linguistics, multimedia and Internet technology. The AKT
182234 -            consortium comprises five UK universities and is funded by
182235 -            a 7M, 6-year EPSRC grant in the context of the
182236 -            Interdisciplinary Research Collaborations programme.
182237 -
182238 -        With an annual grant of $10M - $14M, if KMI starts with the
182239 -        idea proposed by Silva Rhetoricae, submitted, also, today by
182240 -        Henry, per below, ref SDS 0 C24O, then KMI can produce a useful
182241 -        KM tool perhaps in 5 - 10 years, assuming they stick with it.
182242 -        Funding for 6 years may be a problem.
182243 -
182244 -        KMI further claims....
182245 -
182246 -             ..
182247 -            Knowledge = Creation, Annotation, Discussion of Documents
182248 -
182249 -
182250 -            ENRICH
182251 -            Enriching Representations of Work to Support Organizational
182252 -            Learning
182253 -
182254 -            Knowledge-intensive work has at its core the creation,
182255 -            annotation and discussion of documents. D3E is a tool for
182256 -            non-technical users to easily publish Web documents for
182257 -            debate, and is finding applications ranging from scholarly
182258 -            e-journals (such as JIME) to virtual conferences to
182259 -            organizational learning. This technology has been used
182260 -            extensively, for example, in the Dearing Report Discussion
182261 -            Site.
182262 -
182263 -        This equates knowledge with creating documents on the web,
182264 -        which is very useful, but does not accomplish KM, as explained
182265 -        in POIMS. ref OF 1 O87L
182266 -
182267 -        If KMI can improve document management, why not say so, rather
182268 -        than characterize the work as "knowledge" management.  KMI
182269 -        should at least explain how their work is distinguished from
182270 -        traditional document management.  We have libraries, microfilm,
182271 -        computer files, data mining, web pages, AI, DBMS, IT, etc, as
182272 -        reported on 980226. ref SDS 3 2716

400855 - Silva Rhetoricae grounds the explanation of rhetoric in the classical
400856 - focus on effective "oratory," at the time that alphabet technology

581213 -
581214 -      Rhetoric focuses on communication in a context. Speech or writing
581215 -      never occurs in a vacuum, but in some historical, cultural,
581216 -      temporal setting that is intimately tied up with how one frames
581217 -      discourse. In one sense, the "rhetorical situation" refers to
581218 -      what prods or inspires communication: a pressing need, a
581219 -      conventional ceremony, a specific intention.

581236 -      In classical rhetoric, oratory was divided into three branches:
581237 -
581238 -         1.  judicial (forensic = past);
581239 -
581240 -         2.  deliberative (legislative and policy = future) and
581241 -
581242 -         3.  epideictic (ceremonial or demonstrative = present).
581243 -
581244 -
581245 -      Aristotle Identified Time as Key Factor of Context
581246 -
581247 -      For both the analysis of speeches and for composing them,students
581248 -      were trained in recognizing the appropriate kind of oratory.
581249 -      Aristotle associated with each type of oratory an aspect of time
581250 -      (past, present, future), set purposes, and appropriate
581251 -      ("special") topics of invention:
581252 -
581253 -
581254 - POIMS explains SDS integration of past, present and future, as one

581262 - causation, is important to KM. ref SDS 15 1836  POIMS explains human
581263 - mental architecture determines causation based on sequence, derived
581264 - from tracking chronology, i.e., time. ref OF 1 0582
581265 -
581266 - On 000331 Jack cited Gelertner's work that supports Henry's research
581267 - today, showing that time is a key organizing criteria for human
581268 - thought. ref SDS 17 5946   On 000710 Jack submitted a recent article
581269 - by Gelertner making the same point. ref SDS 29 7565

581275 - showed that SDS provides more useful organization than conventional
581276 - tools, by providing the context of time. ref SDS 28 1029
581277 -
581278 - Semiotics was researched on 000713, which showed communication,
581279 - meaning, and inference are key dimensions of KM.  Inference "infers"
581280 - causation, which the human mind assigns based on experience logging
581281 - chronology, i.e., remembering the sequence of events, ref SDS 30 4078,
