Multidisciplinary Studies in Knowledge and Systems Science

Book Description

An increasing amount of data and information has indicated the need for effective knowledge modeling tools for extracting useful information and providing decision aids for various applications. Multidisciplinary Studies in Knowledge and Systems Science brings together valuable research on the adoption of a systems approach to the theory and practice of managing information and people in knowledge intensive activities and processes. By emphasizing the understanding of technical, social, and philosophical frameworks, this book is essential for academics, practitioners, and students interested in the developments of human knowledge processes.
