We solve the problem by generating a graphical representation of the knowledge space. Not in the form of a graph representation as is common practice, but in a more flexible representation that is capable of hosting new relevant knowledge expertises. First by linguistic processing of various free form textual data sources revealing profile or expertise information. Then a topographic map is generated that can be explored interactively and interesting structural facts of the data collection are reported in a document for later analysis.
The map’s generic property also allows for anomaly detection and can be helpful in assuring public safety. Anomalies emerge in several ways: statically as well as dynamically (online monitoring). Having the information is one thing, but failing to connect to it can be fatal.
The customer’s benefits are:
- high level structures are visualised by a 3D map
- actuality as well as low human effort since the whole workflow (including linguistic processing and map generation) is fully automated
- detection and visualisation of anomalies
- combination of exploration (interactive browsing) as well as evaluation services (report generation)
