Summary:
.
The presentation is a contribution to the currently ongoing discussions and broad variety of prototype developments for web-enabled systems having a strong focus of embedding ‘intelligence’ in their set of functionalities. There is a wide range of approaches in pursuing this goal. We will present our view on essential building blocks of intelligent web-enabled systems by using a people-centric and collaborative point of reference. The standpoint is that in addition to reasoning methods automatically performed in software IT must provide a rich environment which enables people to enact the results found with intelligent systems. The approach is to create and maintain an infrastructure for contextual collaboration which provides the necessary tools to creatively and efficiently communicate and collaborate in a process driven organizational environment. The guideline for the presentation is to use the ‘k-pool’ model and system as a point of reference. K-pool is a versatile knowledge management system which has been developed in the author’s team over the last eight years. The goal of k-pool is to provide an integrated and open environment for information gathering, contextualization, communication, collaboration, and information dissemination. K-pool comprises modules for document and content management, workflow processing, a granular access structure from intranet to internet, rich and flexible meta-data and taxonomies, and a variety of surfaces/viewers supporting ‘intelligent’ working by visualization of content semantics (e.g. hyperbolic tree, topic maps, process roadmaps).

Bio
.
Dr. Ludwig Nastansky is Professor of Business Computing and Director of the Groupware Competence Center (GCC) at the University of Paderborn (Germany). His current teaching, research and project activities are focused on exploiting emerging information and communication technologies for collaborative environments, e.g.: integrated process and project control in collaborative solutions, people driven knowledge management applications, human workflow within business process management, core services for collaborative e-business based on Lotus Notes/Domino middleware, and integrated workplace environments built upon the J2EE/IBM-Websphere platform. Prof. Nastansky's previous research areas include Operations Research, Management Science, and Accounting. The GCC tries to combine theoretical orientation in Computer Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW) with practical work in software prototyping for future workplace solutions supporting contextual collaboration. As examples for GCC's orientation in software technology transfer: The conceptual foundation and first prototypes for what has later become IBM's "Lotus Workflow" product has been laid at GCC. GCC has spawned a variety of spin-off software companies. Prof. Nastansky has founded two companies dedicated to services and products which focus on people, collaboration and process management in modern enterprise solutions. He is chairman of the supervisory board of Pavone AG.
