Towards a New Architecture of Knowledge: Big Data, Culture and Creativity
Dresden, Germany - 15-17 June 2016
The 11th edition of the International Forum on Knowledge Asset Dynamics (IFKAD – 2016) addressed three key topics leading towards a new architecture of knowledge: big data, culture and creativity. In view of radically changing demands on knowledge work as an eminent factor for personal, organizational, and societal success its patterns have to be rethought. New ways of creating, processing, and sharing knowledge must be discovered beyond the classic paths of established disciplines
A core driver for rethinking and innovating knowledge work is the increasing interdependence of big data, culture, and creativity. Ubiquitous information and communication technologies produce an ever-expanding amount of data, whose value is hard to tap with principles of conventional data processing – but how to design new methods of analysis? Organizational and community culture is a decisive frame for unprejudiced and venturesome intra- and entrepreneurship, which may result in disruptive solutions – but how to display and nurture the volatile facets of culture? Finally, creativity is one of the remaining human faculties that cannot be replaced by computers by now – but how to reach higher levels of creativity and discover new application fields?
To answer these questions IFKAD 2016 provided a platform for researchers, practitioners, and policy makers to present and reflect original approaches, models and tools for knowledge-based value drivers. To overcome interdisciplinary barriers and to enable a dynamic exchange between the participants systerious methods of knowledge transfer were practically applied at this years conference. This includes interactive sessions, co-creation and open conference formats.
