  • Statement of the ProblemCollaboration between Knowledge Agents

    Active engagement of all involved agents islacking.

    It is difficult to create a knowledge tank orknowledge storage contributed to andaccessible by all K-agents.

    In addition, while explicit knowledge is easyto transfer across time and space; tacitknowledge is much more difficult to transfer.
