Since its inception in 1958, NASA has accumulated a wealth of data and information as part of its spectacular research programme. One of its most significant challenges is how to turn this data and information into actionable knowledge. As Chief Knowledge Architect, our guest, David Meza grapples with this challenge every day. By introducing a new framework, which combines knowledge management, knowledge informatics and data science, he and his team have been able to reduce search time from months to hours and to save millions of dollars.
And looking forward, David talks to Paul Miller about how NASA hopes to incorporate artificial intelligence, augmented reality and virtual reality into their work.
Tune in to hear David’s thoughts on what it’s like to work at NASA; our (sometimes unhealthy) dependency on technology; and how the digital workplace has influenced the transition from working solo to team working (and the demise of the ego!).
