KMi Hat-Trick in National Press

Three KMi related stories appeared today in the Open Eye supplement of the Independent newspaper. The first story described how the new £7million AKT project would allow organisations to share knowledge effectively amongst collaborating workers. This project will use a number of KMi knowledge and web technologies which have been developed in previous EU funded projects.
The centre pages described how hundreds of local parents have learnt key ICT skills through the millenium funded CLUTCH Club Scheme. Within CLUTCH, local parents are challenged to undertake a local history research project which they turn into a website. The site contains a number of historical gems including an audio recording, made in 1959, of a local resident recalling the Christmas of 1874!
Also on the centre pages was an article announcing the arrival of 58 new PhD students to Walton Hall. Joanna Kwiat, one of the five new KMi students, was one of a number of students whose research was highlighted. Joanna will use Artificial Intelligence techniques to improve GPs' diagnostic skills.
