Subject Description
This subject explores issues in using IT to support knowledge sharing and reuse. Challenges in representing and sharing knowledge in the context of deploying knowledge systems are studied. Additional challenges in heterogeneous IT environments are also examined. The subject presents systematic approaches for knowledge engineering via a contemporary Web and modern information modelling approach. The appropriate application environments, acquisition tools and representation schemes for content management are examined along with their relationship to contemporary issues in Web technology.

Subject Learning Outcomes
On successful completion of this subject, students will be able to:
1. Summarise the main challenges in representing and sharing knowledge.
2. Identify and evaluate the organisational and technical issues associated with information and knowledge engineering and management and propose solutions to those issues for specific contexts.
3. Assess and address heterogeneity challenges in dealing with distributed knowledge sources.
4. Evaluate and select knowledge engineering approaches appropriate to particular business problems.
