Learning can be ethereal and abstract. When it comes to employees, organizations need to be aware there may exist varying levels of learning among the workforce and be prepared to reskill employees to keep up with the changing technology and culture. Surprisingly enough, taxonomies can help. This interesting topic came to us from ATD Education in their article, “Putting Taxonomies to Work: Skills Tagging for Deep Capability Building and Experiential Learning.”
A taxonomy backing an artificial intelligence-based learning system can help to identify variations, challenges, and opportunities in learning. With assessments of hard skills vs. human skills, it can assign itself an appropriate response.
A controlled vocabulary is needed to ensure the completeness of machine-assisted or fully automated indexing, regardless of what is indexed. Access Innovations is one of a very small number of companies able to help its clients generate ANSI/ISO/W3C-compliant taxonomies and make their information findable. Whether the need is for an upgrade to an existing taxonomy or the creation of one from scratch, Access Innovations works with clients on taxonomies and thesauri that meet their needs.
