Exploring cool technologies/systems that enhance human thought and coordination (everyone needs a hobby). What gets measured gets managed, so what you measure, how you measure it, and how you interact with that data is incredibly important. The tools we use shape our thoughts.
Anyways… searching through my bookmarks for things that could help humans process complex data, I came across this post by @luis: The power of knowledge graphs. The article describes a few potential uses for knowledge graphs:
- Formalize governance processes , thus increasing transparency and reducing subjectivity
- Write down company processes, to summarize flows in a concise manner
- Graph out the values or the manifesto of a community , to make sure it always follows them
The article concludes saying:
- “I’m genuinely amused by knowledge graphs, and I think they could help reduce misinterpretations and improve accuracy in how humans and organizations communicate their view of the world.”
@luis what’s your current thinking on knowledge graphs to improve human understanding of complex systems, and do you think this could help us improve Aragon’s UX?
