Reducing Information Pollution
IORG isn’t the only group of people interested in the problem of information overload. Here’s a glimpse at some of the other stuff going on in the IO world. On the academic side, a workshop on enhanced messaging was held at AAAI 2008 with a bunch of interesting presentations. In the media, there have been a flurry of articles revolving around the problem of information overload that I’ve been informally collecting on this FriendFeed page (where anyone is welcome to submit links and comments). We’re working on an updated and upgraded version of our IORG resource center to collect links to research papers, articles, and much more information around IO. And the business world is starting to take notice as well, with industry conferences like Defrag springing up to address IO topics (full disclosure – I’m speaking at Defrag and know the organizers). It’s great to see so much activity around this problem!
IORG hosted a webinar “Overcoming Information Overload” on December 13th, 2016 that brought together interesting and diverse thinkers to share their views and research.News Archive
