Knowledge in published research literature is now so vast and fragmented that it is no longer possible for any individual to keep up to with the various advances relevant to their area. Hidden knowledge occurs when a connection can be inferred by combining information from multiple documents but that connection has not been noticed.
KDisc was an EPSRC funded grant on Knowledge Discovery, with the following participants:
- Investigators: Mark Stevenson, Rob Gaizauskas, Sarah Danson, Oliver Bandmann
- Research assistant: Judita Preiss
- PhD student: Roland Roller
The project ran from June 2012 until May 2015.
