July 2021 Seminar : Ethical Artificial Intelligence

Summary

What is ethical, or responsible, artificial intelligence (AI) ? In essence, we can identify three concerns/issues : “the moral behaviour of humans as they design, make, use and treat artificially intelligent systems.” “A concern with the behaviour of machines, in machine ethics” – for example, computational ethics. ” “The issue of a possible singularity due to superintelligent AI” – a fascinating glimpse into the future as computers might ‘take over’. Is this still science fiction ?

 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ethics_of_artificial_intelligence#Singularity

This seminar encompassed important topics for Knowledge Management and Information Management  practitioners. Topics included ‘bias’ in the machine, in machine learning, in the content cycle, in the taxonomy, in the text analytics, in the algorithms  and, of course, in the real world. Critically, where do knowledge organization systems fit in and how can practitioners play a role in creating ethical artificial intelligence ?  Should companies begin to develop an AI ethics strategy that is publicly available ?

Seminar: May 2021: The status of KM in 2020, and trends for the future

Summary

In early 2020, Knoco undertook a third global “state of the art” survey of Knowledge Management. The results give a snapshot of the state of pre-covid KM, and comparison with previous surveys allows trends to be identified.  Nick Milton, the director of Knoco Ltd has a fascinating insight into the survey results. He pinpointed outcomes that would give powerful arguments to KM professionals who need to persuade their leadership team and colleagues to take the subject seriously and allocate appropriate resources.  In particular, the survey results show that knowledge management has become more relevant after the shocks and changes caused by the pandemic.   The discussion following his fascinating talk focused on how we could use the new ideas generated for our own work situations.

Speaker

Nick Milton is director and co-founder of Knoco Ltd (https://www.knoco.com) with over 25 years experience in Knowledge Management.

March 2021 Seminar: Working during the Covid-19 pandemic: sharing insights and experiences

Summary

This meeting consisted of  eight speakers talking for ten minutes each about different aspects of their experience of working during this time, followed by the usual syndicate sessions, where experiences were  shared in more detail, so that we can manage better as we move forward into a still uncertain future.

Speakers

The eight speakers talked to the following programme, brief comments are noted below each title :

2.35 Paul Corney – President of CILIP

Thoughts around virtual watercoolers and orchestrated serendipity in a virtual environment.

Paul said that daily routines mattered. Start your day with the most difficult task which needs your focus. Develop ‘peripheral virtual vision’, insisting on an “all in it together” policy. Make time for meaningful connections. Make “watercooler time” with your favourite people at work – ‘learn about learning’. Ensure that every meeting has an agenda and stick to it.

2.45 Dion Lindsay – KM Consultant and Trainer.

Thoughts on recruiting during the pandemic.

Dion is an assessor for police recruitment in England and Wales. Covid-19 has transformed the police recruitment process because it had to be done quicker via online services and the web. He designs workshops and consults and trains organisations on KM digital products. The changes he has experienced have been unexpected but very challenging and enjoyable.

2.55 Perrine Guy Duche – Knowledge Manager at CRU International.

Perrine has been working on the ‘eHub Project’ – a collaborative attempt to integrate the intranet with the digital workplace. The central focus is on embedding knowledge sharing in the workflow of company employees.

3.05 Yasmin Dubash – Knowledge Manager at CBRE UK a Global Real Estate Corporation.

Yasmin started her new job at CBRE UK on March 2nd  2020 and on March 23rd 2020 the UK went into lockdown ! Employees started to take their pc’s home to continue working one week before the official government announcement of the lockdown. So through small conversations – 15 minutes to 30 minutes long – she built up relationships with her co-workers. Through being self-motivated and tenacious she has managed to roll out a knowledge sharing platform for the UK.

3.15 Sophie Sheinwald – Visual Storyteller and Photographer.

Thoughts on photographing key workers and the ‘vision project’.

Sophie began photographing NHS workers during the pandemic and it went viral on facebook.

So then 100 other photographers joined in from Northern Ireland, Wales, the North of England and Aberdeen. Each worker was photographed indoors and outdoors. Health workers were also photographed ‘behind the mask’ and in normal times. Also, their views were solicited.

3.30 Breakout groups and Tea break.

4.00 Conrad Taylor – Visual Communicator, publisher, knowledge and information manager, innovator.

Thoughts on a room with a working view.

Conrad told us about the breadth and depth of his involvement with knowledge and information management as well as illustration, graphic design and media production work going back to the 1980’s. For him 2020 was a good year to have a lockdown !  In essence the internet has transformed absolutely everything and he can handle all his digital requirements for his array of projects from ‘one room’.

4.10 Melanie Harris – Head Librarian at DWP

Personally it has been a tough time for Melanie as she has had to cope with the breavement of her partner as well as the pandemic but she has managed to change departments and to find that the DWP is investing in the library as an invaluable resource. She is currently doing a vital thing : finding out about other people’s work in her new department.

4.20 Ed Jewell – Head Librarian of Jersey Library.

The Library in Jersey is open. Social distancing – with masks – is still in force. Getting out of lockdown has been a real challenge. Now, they must manage public expectations. These are high. It is tiring for staff (chocolate is a welcome necessity)! Social and business trends have been accelerated by 10 years. Digital inclusion is right up the agenda. It is a sobering, but not a surprising thought, that during lockdown that sterling feature of public libraries – the home library service was the only point of face-to-face contact for some islanders.

Time and Venue

Thursday 18th March 2021 via the Zoom platform at 2.30pm.

January 2021 Seminar: Managing Knowledge in Project Environments

Summary

This meeting was about Knowledge Management which is widely practised in project environments, but not always recognised as such. What is recognised as knowledge management is often information management – and tends to be treated a series of unconnected activities.

Members joined us to find out where knowledge management has been hiding, and how to use knowledge management thinking to solve common project problems.

Speaker

Our speaker was Judy Payne. Judy is a management consultant – she is a Director of Hemdean Consulting – and an academic – BPP University, Associate Faculty, Business and Law Schools. She was formerly a director of the Henley KM Forum and preceded that by being Visiting Executive Fellow where she undertook research, supervision of MBA dissertation students and occasional teaching.

The focus of her work is on KM and organisational learning – how to get people to work together effectively and efficiently to get things done, to come up with new ideas, to make better decisions and generally make the very best use of what they know. In practice, she runs workshops and undertakes consultancy assignments. The former involves designing and facilitating the workshop itself, the latter involves several months work.

She is Chair of the BSI Knowledge Management Standards Committee. She is Co-Chair of Knowledge SIG – Association for Project Management. Her mission is to open up project management thinking to knowledge management. She has a 1st Class Honours Degree in Water Resources and Computer Science from Aston University. She has a PhD in Sustainable Urban Drainage, also from Aston University. She has an MBA from Henley Management College.

October 2020 Seminar: From Hawley to the Edge of Intelligence : the continuing evolution of Knowledge and Information Management to adapt to the new normal

Summary

This seminar was all about the ‘Financial Times’ survey entitled ‘The edge of intelligence’ published in early March 2020.  Stephen Phillips is a member of CILIP, the Library and Information Association, which worked with the ‘Financial Times’ to commission a survey of its readers. The purpose of this was to build a better understanding of their perception of knowledge and information management.  This exercise followed on from the release in 2019, of ‘Information as an Asset’,  an update of an earlier report from the mid-1990s issued by the Hawley Committee.  NetIKX has always been deeply involved with this work and therefore wanted to provide an overview of the new report and how it had developed from the previous Hawley Report.  Stephen also discussed the ‘Key findings of Dell’s recent Digital Transformation Index’ which emphasised the importance of knowledge sharing, extraction of insights from data, skills in data analysis and related disciplines and the need to make business decisions based on data in real time.

The seminar therefore gave the audience an opportunity to reflect on the key findings of the survey and then discuss the practical ways that Knowledge and Information Managers can help their organisations going forward, through the pandemic, constantly maintaining and building on their success.

Speaker:

Stephen Phillips is the owner of Smart IM Ltd which he has created following on from a highly successful thirty year career in the financial services industry where he developed and implemented KM and IM strategy, 3rd party data sourcing and management and onshore/offshore staffing models. He has a track record of innovative use of technology to shape and manage workflows, 3rd party inventory, entitlements, credentials and usage tracking, machine translation and KM platforms. Smart IM provides strategic support to deliver these capabilities, including research, information and knowledge management solutions.

Stephen believes that world class Knowledge and Information Management enables good decision making and competitive advantage. Organisations can be helped to address four strategic imperatives : to increase revenues; to reduce costs; to mitigate risks and to comply with legal and regulatory obligations.
Stephen is 2021 Conference Chair for SLA Europe and Vice Chair of CILIP’s Knowledge and Information Management Member Network. He has previously served as President of the European Chapter of SLA and actively contributes to industry events and journals.

In his spare time, Stephen is a school trustee, he is a keen golfer, he likes to vacation in Portugal with his family and he enjoys long walks with Reggie, his Airedale terrier “discussing life, the universe and everything” …

September 2020 Seminar: TRIZ and how it can be applied to Knowledge and Information Management

Summary

This meeting introduced the little-known methodology with Russian origins, called TRIZ. Patterns that were uncovered while delving deep into the patents database during work in Russia revealed around 100 concepts, principles, and strategies that they believe will help to solve any problem. Ron has extensive experience using TRIZ in a huge range of different situations and brought his passion and expertise to pull together some fascinating examples of TRIZ being used in practical situations.  After we had absorbed all the ideas he was explaining, we had wonderful networking sessions to discuss what might be relevant to our own work situations.  Audience members left eager to see what they would apply on Monday morning, where Ron had assured us would have the capacity to think like a genius! It was a lively and productive session and even if we fail to deliver at genius level, we had certainly gained fascinating insights into a more systematic way of looking at the problem solving needed for complex situations.

Speaker

Ron Donaldson is a freelance Knowledge Ecologist. Ron has a strong environmental background that includes 21 years with English Nature and an Honours Degree in Combined Sciences.

Beginning his career in systems and process improvement he was drawn towards the anthropological, people and community aspects of knowledge management within which he gained quite a high profile speaking (and facilitating workshops) about the application of story telling and complexity thinking.

He now takes an ecological view of organisational change by placing emphasis on communities and the knowledge and ideas that flow within and between them. His approach to facilitation then creates the conditions for revealing and self-realising the sense made of the stories being told. All of this is done with a deep understanding of the unpredictable nature of complex systems and some of the latest thinking in the Cognitive Sciences.

In the last 10 years as a self-employed knowledge ecologist he has absorbed methods and ideas from an even wider range of disciplines from problem solving to open innovation design thinking, collaborative community building through to using narrative frameworks to communicate complex ideas.

He believes his strongest asset is having a foot in, and being accepted by, several very different networks, from environmental story tellers, engineers, conservationists and groups working for social change, and in doing so identifying and transferring the best insights between them.

Ron introduced us to the basic principles and insights behind TRIZ and then shared with us a couple of techniques for us to familiarize ourselves and apply during the syndicate session.

Summary

Antony Groves, from the University of Sussex gave a lively account of how his team have made ten changes to the library website since lockdown. He talked about benchmarking, user surveys and feedback and plenty of iterations to get things right.
They have had two aims: to make the site accessible to meet Government requirements and also to make the site as useful as possible during the lockdown period. This was a huge challenge in difficult circumstances, but the efforts were rewarded by a ‘Customer Service Excellence’ award.  Antony gave us sufficient details to really bring home the challenges that were faced by librarians in the lockdown, particularly in the specific context of the range of users who needed resources for their study, research and their daily tasks. NetIKX members have commented on how valuable the session was for their own work in this area and there were plenty of questions to Antony to complete the session.

May 2020 Seminar: How do we thrive in a hyper-connected, complex world?

Summary

This meeting was a regular Knowledge Café that David Gurteen held especially for NetIKX members.  We heard David set out the reasons he felt the world had changed beyond all recognition since the second world war.  He listed the familiar story of the internet, transport advances, global finances and social media but also more unexpected aspects that give our world a new complexity. Then he invited us into break-out groups to share our own ideas on this fascinating topic.  After a break, David focused our attention on his favoured area of expertise; the need for new leadership styles and the power of conversation. He was very clear that people did not need a title of leader to develop the power of leadership. We joined second break-outs to take our networking further.  Then we shared ideas in a stimulating plenary. The meeting showed the value of the Knowledge Café approach, but also was a masterclass in using Zoom as the communication media.  NetIKX will take the ideas and the methods forward for the future.

Speakers

David Gurteen is a writer, speaker, and conversational facilitator. The focus of his work is Conversational Leadership – a style of working where we appreciate the power of conversation and take a conversational approach to the way that we connect, relate, learn and work with each other. He is the creator of the Knowledge Café – a conversational process to bring a group of people together to learn from each other, build relationships and make a better sense of a rapidly changing, complex, less predictable world. He has facilitated hundreds of Knowledge Cafés and workshops in over 30 countries around the world over the past 20 years. He is also the founder of the Gurteen Knowledge Community – a global network of over 20,000 people in 160 countries. Currently, he is writing an online book on Conversational Leadership. You can join a Knowledge Café if you consult his website.

January 2020 Seminar: Virtual working and learning: is it working for you?

Summary

NetIKX had a dazzling meeting with Paul Corney, President-elect of CILIP, showing his wealth of knowledge about meetings of all kinds, and specifically virtual meetings.  The presentation ranged from detailed analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of technology packages – where he pulled out some surprising issues to watch out for – to the preparation and etiquette that makes humans effective when working together at a distance.  That was to be expected from someone who had once been managed by a boss located on the far side of the globe!  The meeting culminated in a vote among those present to find our most useful takeaways.   To learn what we decided, please look at our blog! All in all, the seminar featured lots of fun and instructive anecdotes, takeaways for the workplace, and finally networking with refreshments – it turned out to be a perfect NetIKX event.

Speakers

Paul Corney is Managing Director of Knowledge et al. A long-time business consultant with broad global experience, he spent 25 years in London as Senior Manager at Saudi International Bank and as Vice President at Zurich Reinsurance before becoming the Strategy & Business Advisor to the CEO of a dotcom software organization (Sopheon PLC) and Information & Knowledge Advisor to the CEO of a leading reinsurance broker (BMS Group). As such, he was one of the first ‘knowledge managers’ in London. Outside of work, Corney is a founding trustee of PlanZheores, a London-based charitable organization whose aim is to make good use of surplus food. He regularly speaks and holds Master Classes at international events on information and knowledge management and is a member of the British Standards Institute KM Standards Committee (KMS/1).

Time and Venue

Wednesday 29th January 2020. 2pm The British Dental Association, 64 Wimpole Street, London W1G 8YS

Pre Event Information

Following Paul’s presentation, we will have a group exercise where we will sketch a typology of virtual meeting scenarios, technologies that may underpin them, and what they make either easy or difficult. We’ll also share our own experiences of virtual meeting spaces and try to find rules of thumb whereby we can make such gatherings work better. There will then be an opportunity to network over drinks and nibbles.  Do come along and join us, as we haven’t yet found a technology for pouring a complimentary glass of wine for remote participants!
