Proof-of-Concept of Automatic Tagging and Enterprise Reusability. In some settings, enterprises have achieved reusability of learning objects and content in different contexts. For example, Knowledge Media, Inc. and Autonomy have deployed auto indexing and auto tagging, auto sequencing of reusable knowledge objects using Bayesian algorithms/Shannon’s theorem for conceptual search, and indexing methodologies. They have also deployed auto-indexing of multimedia using voice recognition utilities and subsequent indexing. Proof-of-concept exists today.

 

Proof-of-Concept Enterprise Accounting and Costing of e-Knowledge. As they develop experience in e-knowledge, leading-edge enterprises are adapting their cost accounting systems and procedures to cost-out e-knowledge practices and products. Over the next two years (2003–2004), new model practices will emerge.

Model Protocols for Enterprise Knowledge Asset Management. Current, first-generation approaches to knowledge asset management are too costly to be attractive for the full range of enterprise knowledge assets.

 

This includes the cost of policy and protocol development and the cost of tagging, content management, and support. In response, enterprises have digitized their most strategic and/or often used resources. Over the next several years (2003–2004), exemplary policies, protocols and automated tagging, and similar means will be used to develop models that can be adapted by a wide range of enterprises. Associations like NACUBO, EDUCAUSE, NACUA, ASTD, ARL, and others are likely to play a major role in the development and promulgation of models and the reduction of costs.
