The 19th European Networked Knowledge Organization Systems (NKOS) Workshop is scheduled for Thursday, September 12, 2019, to be held as part of the Theory and Practice of Digital Libraries (TPDL) 2019 in Oslo, Norway.

The agenda is full of interesting, engaging topics and speakers. This includes Access Innovations’ own Marjorie Hlava whose workshop is KOS Mappings. Although linked data is much reported in academia, there is a larger effort underway to map KOS and coded lists to enable e-commerce, as well as brick and mortar commerce.

In addition, Jay Ven Eman will be talking about Using KOS for Artificial Intelligence Applications. There are many algorithms which are classified as artificial intelligence (AI). Most AI systems use several. Some are based on absolutes and others on inference and statistics.

Check out the complete program and if you are attending TPDL, consider adding these talks to your agenda.

NKOS is devoted to the discussion of functional data models for enabling knowledge organization systems/services such as: classification systems, thesauri, gazetteers, and ontologies as networked interactive information services to support the description and retrieval of diverse information resources through the Internet.
