This series targets information users and producers with focus on the Sudanese context. We will consider our information environment and ask what content is important, and how to get people to contribute to and use it. We will explore specific questions, such as what knowledge is valuable in organisations and how to get people to share it. We will also consider knowledge representation approaches and technologies, and discuss contemporary phenomena like social media and the rise of virtual communities. The story
of how this series came together is one about a connected world, an “orchestrated serendipity”. Let us hope we continue to discover ways to improve the ways we connect, on the ground and virtually.
Guest speakers include Paul Corney, a prominent figure in the knowledge management world, and Dr. Taha Osman, an expert in information retrieval and semantic web technologies.
