For the past 13 years, i-KNOW has focused on knowledge technologies which build the basis for knowledge management. In the light of new trends such as big data and the massive utilization of mobile devices we think it is time to embrace new developments in order to create systems which interact naturally with humans, learn from their experiences and generate and evaluate evidence-based hypotheses. That is, we interpret cognitive computing as the convergence of various knowledge technologies research fields. On the other hand, data-driven business represents the business perspective on cognitive computing and takes application specific knowledge (such as semantics) into account.
