ISKO UK (in cooperation with the UCL Department for Information Studies) organized a lecture by David Snowden on the topic of human-machine symbiosis for data interpretation, followed by a panel discussion.
We would like to thank to Conrad Taylor for recording the event and making mp3 available.
|David Snowden:||Human-machine symbiosis for data interpretation
Much work on search, retrieval and interpretation is caught between the Scylla of restrictive taxonomies and the Charybdis of the semantic web. Too much of IT practice is based on the assumption that the human brain is a "limited capacity information processing device" (A-Level psychology text book) and that language has a common structure and meaning.
