Why Taxonomies Matter? : Ontologies, Auto-Classification and Artificial Intelligence

It is with enthusiasm that the Cogniva Community of Practice on Information Architecture invites you to a presentation on taxonomies.

Regarding the session:

In this session, our dynamic trio will dive into explaining how taxonomies power up new technologies based on Artificial Intelligence and Auto-Classification; they will review how Taxonomies are the foundation of Ontologies to provide more precise semantic context to document files.
