According to a new press release, “The Semantic Web Company, Mekon and Enterprise Knowledge conducted an Information Management Survey for practitioners that provides new insights into the current status of this highly diverse technology field. Knowledge engineering is an integral part of the development process of cognitive applications and artificial intelligence. 67% of information professionals agree that the demand for their expertise is rising. At the same time, every second knowledge engineer thinks that organizations don’t understand their role and potential contribution. A better alignment of the business and technology side is needed to fulfill the high expectations in regards to smart applications. The survey report also highlights how information management is embedded in organizations and which tools are used to build and maintain cognitive applications. The maturity degree of an organization is definitely reflected by its usage of professional semantic metadata management solutions and the inclusion of complementary technologies.”

The release go on, “Depending on the professional role, technologies are of different relevance. Machine learning is for all data and content professionals at the forefront of technological innovations. However, it needs to be differentiated who is working with it and who has an opinion about it. The top management declares cognitive computing as leading technology trend. For them, it’s not about a sub-set of technologies, but a robust platform that enables companies to build cognitive applications. Download the Free Report (no sign up).”
