Overview

The Center for Design & Analysis has recently established a Knowledge Management team, passionate about developing creative solutions to help teams access knowledge that can inform key decisions throughout the drug development life cycle. Working closely with a team of data scientists, we look for opportunities to use data and technology alongside an understanding of business processes and human/interpersonal factors. Our solutions connect people to the stories, experiences, and other people, equipping them to ask better questions, of the right people, more quickly.

Project Description

Traditionally, employees rely on personal networks or word of mouth to find colleagues with the expertise or specialized knowledge to answer questions or provide advice. Opportunities to leverage knowledge graphs using a company's internal data has also opened new doors for helping drug developers not only search better, but to also discover and connect with others who can help them tackle challenging problems. The focus of the project involves conducting research and developing a proof of concept to enable expertise identification/location and linking to relevant knowledge across our drug development teams at Amgen.

Responsibilities
  • Conduct a landscape analysis of how different industries approach the problem of expert identification
  • Identify and develop taxonomies to support the enablement of knowledge graphs for expert identification
