This event took place on Thursday 15 March 2007 at 14:00

Dr. Parag Sanghani AESPG Institute of Business Management Ahmedabad, India

As markets shift, uncertainty dominates, technologies proliferate, competitors multiply and products and services become obsolete, successful companies are characterised by their ability to consistently create, disseminate and use new knowledge. With the rising importance of knowledge in the recent times, knowledge management has gained worldwide attention. Several developments like globalisation, advances in ICT, and a knowledge-centric view of the organisation led to this recognition and popularity (Prusak, 2001). Organisations have recognised that KM is a source of competitiveness and there is proliferation of knowledge-based products and services.

With increase in information technology usage, many organisations have started KM initiatives in India. Some of Indian IT majors are winning few prestigious knowledge management awards like MAKE awards for better management of knowledge. This presentation highlights KM in the Indian context. The presentation offers an overview about knowledge management research carried out by Dr. Sanghani and shows a framework developed by him for KM technology tool selection.

Multimedia and Information Systems
Our research is centred around the theme of Multimedia Information Retrieval, ie, Video Search Engines, Image Databases, Spoken Document Retrieval, Music Retrieval, Query Languages and Query Mediation.

We focus on content-based information retrieval over a wide range of data spanning form unstructured text and unlabelled images over spoken documents and music to videos. This encompasses the modelling of human perception of relevance and similarity, the learning from user actions and the up-to-date presentation of information. Currently we are building a research version of an integrated multimedia information retrieval system MIR to be used as a research prototype. We aim for a system that understands the user's information need and successfully links it to the appropriate information sources, be it a report or a TV news clip. This work is guided by the vision that an automated knowledge extraction system ultimately empowers people making efficient use of information sources without the burden of filing data into specialised databases.
