Background     (1M)

This "Ontology in Knowledge Management and Decision Support (OKMDS)" mini-series is a collaboration between NASA, Ontolog and the (US) Federal Knowledge Management Working Group (KMWG) and is co-organized by a team of individuals from various related communities passionate about creating the opportunity for an inter-community, collaborative exploration of the intersection between Ontology, Knowledge Management and Decision Support, that could eventually lead us toward "Better Decision Making."     (1M1)

The mini-series will span a period of about six months (Nov-2007 to May-2008), during which we will be featuring Talks, Panel Discussions and Online Discourse on pertinent issues. We expect all the talks and panel discussion events to be offered in both 'real world' (augmented conference calls) and 'virtual world' (Second Life) settings.     (1M2)

  • Session Format: this is a virtual session conducted over an augmented conference call. This virtual event is also featured concurrently at the NASA/JPL Explorer Island in the "Second Life" virtual world settings.     (1N1)

Title: Creating Informational and Virtual Space for Knowledge Sharing     (1O)

Abstract: (by JeanneHolm)     (1O1)

How does the way in which organizations organize and share their knowledge affect the way in which people have conversations and drive dialogue? Traditionally, architects design buildings that create spaces for conversation--meeting rooms, offices, conference centers. This session explores how these methods have been translated into the information environment and how community physical spaces can be viewed, to understand how knowledge flows within a city. Understanding how that information space is created in an organization through ontologies and taxonomies that drive people in certain directions for decision making and discussion is the focus of another topic. Bringing these two ideas together into the idea of creating virtual physical spaces that help citizens engage with government, participate in a rocket launch, and support the mission of NASA will be explored in looking at NASA's experience in the Second Life virtual world ("SL") over the last two years.     (1O2)
