Here is another story along this line. It is about an Online Encyclopedia project that essentially writes itself. Remember back when some people that that Wikipedia would never be all that useful. I bet you’ll hear the same kind of discussion about a computer generated encyclopedia.
There is a project in HP labs that is somewhat akin to this that I mentioned a few weeks back called Compass. When organizations can mine their interactions for context and show relationships we’re in for a quite different ride from a knowledge management perspective than we’ve had in the past.
