Abstract
Aimed at knowledge management, IEM's innovative knowledge Vortal accomplishes all of the essential elements central to knowledge management. Our design connects to relevant sources of knowledge such as subject matter experts (SMEs), allows a uniform andeasy method to enter knowledge, and extracts/grabs pieces of useful knowledge from diversely located SMEs. Furthermore, our system indexes, categorizes, sorts, labels, abstracts the knowledge, makes knowledge(information) available to the users in easy,learnable manner; and updates, improves, maintains the knowledge base. The proposed design include over a dozen innovations including: artificial intelligence based expert system, innovative knowledge search, and powerful information delivery methods.Inthe Phase I effort, IEM will prototype all of the innovative features and create a prototype knowledge management site to study its operation and usefulness. The prototype site will serve as the basis of the Phase II design and implementation. This projectwill be done with the help of our partner, Smart Force, the largest e-Learning company in the world (IDC).Some of the applications for DOD as well as commercial markets include: a revolutionary e-learning model suitable for many other e-learning sites,creation of help desk type online facilities, knowledge repository sites for just about any topic, and improved knowledge search mechanism
