Data & Knowledge Management (DKM) is a research unit within the Information Technology Center, of Fondazione Bruno Kessler.
The Data and Knowledge Management research field comprises a range of practices used inside an organisation such as an enterprise, a community of interests, or the entire web, to create, represent, share and make available knowledge and data that are relevant for pursuing the organisation's goals. It is an interdisciplinary research field on the border between computer science, businesses, philosophy, and mathematics.
The group aims to foster research and technology
for developing methodologies and tools to support the elicitation of knowledge from data and experts, its encoding in computer interpretable formats, the integration of heterogeneous knowledge bases, and the development of intelligent inference algorithms.
