10 Things You Need for AI-Enabled Knowledge Discovery

Uncovering insights and deep connections across your unstructured data using AI is challenging. You need to design for scalability and an appropriate level of sophistication at various stages in the data ingestion pipeline, as well as post-ingestion interactions with the corpora. This session will discuss the top 10 things, including the techniques that you would need to account for when designing AI-enabled discovery and exploration systems, to augment & assist knowledge workers to make good decisions. These include document cleansing/conversion, pre-processing, machine-learned entity extraction and resolution, efficient methods for indexing, knowledge graph construction, natural language queries, passage retrieval, relevancy training, relationship graphs and anomaly detection.
