How Knowledge Graphs Can Help, Banks Enhance Customer Experience

Banks spent the last decades gathering data. The data, however, is often disconnected and stored in silos, thereby making data management difficult. As a result, banks find it challenging to make bank-wide research and discover insights from data with the help of Artificial Intelligence (AI) applications.

One way publishers can go beyond establishing credibility is to leverage content enrichment practices.

Adding Interoperability to Cybersecurity Operations

The cybersecurity threat landscape is a rapidly evolving one. As a result, there has been a virtual explosion of security products and attendant data. Organizations are subsequently saddled with the complex task of extracting real value from an ever-growing pile of data. To help organizations address this challenge, industry pioneers came together to foster the interoperability of security products based on open standards.

Elsevier recently launched the first branch of its Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) taxonomy in collaboration with the Beijing University of Chinese Medicine (BUCM). Acupuncture, a therapeutic model and key component of TCM, is the first branch of the taxonomy that is available now.
