The transformation of accumulated information into actual knowledge is a matter of central importance for the iAS.
But how is information turned into knowledge? Or, more generally, how does a society based on information become a society based on knowledge?
To start with, we need to join the databases of technical information with those of semantical information, to lay the foundation for a new system of knowledge.
The prerequisite for this step is an intelligent and uniform system that can navigate through and visualize the decentralized databases. Only then can a large amount of data be structured clearly enough to reveal correlations, making it possible to merge the fragmentary pieces of information into real knowledge. The iAS is highly competent in this field.
At present, iAS develops a high security system which is required for the FDA-conform input of scientific data within the scope of clinical studies.
