Today's business world is very dynamic. The traditional e-Business paradigm is moving rapidly towards collaborative business models. The agility of emerging distributed and collaborative business processes requires right 'Knowledge and Intelligence' at the right time to make right decision to meet your business objectives.

For government agencies, the 'Knowledge and Intelligence' takes a very different form. The agility of governmental affairs depends on how efficiently civil services are performed and how civilians conduct their affairs/obligations. The key performance metrics are not based on profitability but on delivering quality services to the member of the civic society efficiently.

CoNE Objectives:

  • Theoretical and applied research in the area of knowledge discovery from structured and unstructured data

  • Collect and study public and private entrepreneur data to understand: a. patterns b. relationships between groups of data c. predict future on historical data

  • Algorithmic research in distributed environment

  • Text Mining Multimedia Data Mining

  • Web Mining

The activities at CoNE are not limited to Research activities by Student and Faculty, but also involve Business and Government Organization to ensure right research areas are addressed that researchers and students are skilled to address knowledge management challenges of the emerging world. CoNE will also collaborate with world leading knowledge management and business intelligence through leaders to help CoNE team in formulating research areas and offer coaching/mentoring to researchers

The CoNE collaboration with University's Center for Research in Urdu Language Processing (CRULP) offers a unique opportunity in advanced Streaming Content Mining for spoken language such as Arabic, Urdu, English, Persian, Sanskrit and Urdu and Regional Eastern languages.  The CRULP is heavily focused on Speech Processing, Language Processing and Script processing (visit http://www.crulp.org for more details) . The Laboratory of Neural Networks and Evolutionary Computations will be a key resource for CoNE new Psyche-Mining imitative.
