Welcome to KSEM

Knowledge Science, Engineering and Management

The importance of studying knowledge science, knowledge engineering and knowledge management has been recognized widely. We could cite Feigenbaum’s words in his book The fifth generation, Artificial Intelligence and Japan’s Computer challenge to the World, for demonstrating the point:

  •  “Knowledge is not the same as information. Knowledge is Information that has been pared, shaped, interpreted, selected, and transformed”
  •  “Knowledge is power, and the computer is an amplifier of that power. We are now at the dawn of a new computer revolution…the transition from information processing to knowledge processing”
  •  “…establish a ‘knowledge industry’ in which knowledge itself will be a salable commodity like food and oil. Knowledge itself is to become the wealth of nations”.

KSEM means Knowledge Science, Engineering and Management. This is a synthetic research field involving theory, technique, tools, methodology and systems of research on knowledge and knowledge processing. In 2004, the China’s Natural Science Foundation initiated a major research program called Basic Theory and Core Techniques of non-canonical Knowledge. It was motivated by this program that we have proposed and initiated the international conference series on KSEM.
This web site is aimed to

  • making available information about KSEM conferences among people who are interested in it.
  • Serving as a representative forum for experts within the KSEM related field.
  • Distributing KSEM related information and knowledge, e.g papers, projects, news, discussions and even blogs.

Please don’t hesitate to let us know if you have any comments or suggestions.
Thank you for your visiting.
