edisconet and HSLU Secure Funding from Innosuisse for “Silent Knowledge”, an Innovative AI Project

PRESS RELEASE – Switzerland, 27 May 2024 – edisconet, one ecosystem to preserve tacit knowledge within organizations through AI and learning tools, is proud to announce a collaboration with research partner Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts (HSLU) to receive funding for their project “Silent knowledge. Learn to learn with AI support – New ways to link employee interests with knowledge management strategies,” from Innosuisse.

The project leverages advanced natural language processing (NLP) and sentiment analysis techniques within a multilingual collaborative Knowledge Management System (KMS) platform to enhance organizational learning. With the help of AI technology, the project aims to address the challenges faced by organizations in documenting expert knowledge and integrating critical knowledge into daily business processes.

The main key advantages of the project include facilitating the capture of tacit knowledge, customizing learning to individual needs, generating efficient training and e-learning solutions, boosting employee engagement by valuing their knowledge contribution, promoting continuous self-reflective learning and skill development, and ultimately enhancing productivity and reducing costs for organizations.

“We are thrilled to have been granted additional funding from Innosuisse for our innovation project “Silent Knowledge” in close collaboration with HSLU,” said Dirk Zimanky, CEO of edisconet. “Innosuisse promotes science-based innovation in the interest of the economy and society in Switzerland. Our project has the potential to transform the way organizations approach knowledge management and learning, and we are excited to be at the forefront of this transformative development. We are proud to continue the collaboration with the University of Applied Sciences Lucerne: Prof. Dr. Stephanie Kaudela-Baum from the Economics Department and Prof. Dr. Petra Müller-Csernetzky from the Department of Technology & Architecture as our scientific project partners.”

Currently we are working on building a project base with clients, and are looking for Swiss industrial companies that are available for interviews about their needs and challenges to manage and secure-critical knowledge within their companies.
