Vatican Library Goes Digital Under New Pope - Yahoo! News (blog)

Vatican Library Goes Digital Under New Pope - Yahoo! News (blog) | The Information Specialist's Scoop | Scoop.it


Pope Francis isn't the only newcomer to the Vatican. New technology has also found its way inside the ancient institution.

 Cloud computing corporation EMC recently announced that it will soon begin the process of digitalizing the Vatican Apostolic Library.

EMC said it will spearhead the collaborative effort to preserve the 40 million pages of the Vatican Library in an ISO-certifiable digital format. The high-tech makeover of the Vatican library will likely take nine years to complete. The catalogue includes 80,000 historic manuscripts and 8,900 incunabula, or books and pamphlets published before 1501.

The Search Engine We REALLY Want To See Google (or Microsoft) Build

When you sit down and think about it, search engines today have not changed all that dramatically in terms of depth-of-insight compared to their early days. we thought it would be fun to set aside those limitations and think about what online search could be. In doing so, we set aside both the business limitations and those technical limitations we thought would be theoretically solvable in the near to mid-term that currently prevent it from becoming a true knowledge engine.

'Knowledge management key in corporate agenda' - NY Daily News

Knowledge management has become a key item on the corporate agenda and is increasingly seen as an enabler fostering an organisation's ability to innovate, industrialists said here Thursday.

Speaking at the inauguration of Confederation of Indian Industries' Knowledge Management Summit 2013, CII president Adi Godrej said that the good news is that we have excellent companies with excellent practices to pull from.

"The bad news is that we don't have enough platforms by which these practices spread," he said.

Godrej said that one such platform is this annual CII summit, which brings together various stakeholders from industry, academia, public sector, and society to enter into learning, discussion and debate.

txwikinger's curator insight, February 26, 2013 2:26 PM

WASHINGTON (AP) -- A sharply-divided Supreme Court on Tuesday threw out an attempt by U.S. citizens to challenge the expansion of a surveillance law used to monitor conversations of foreign spies and terrorist suspects.

With a 5-4 vote, the high court ruled that a group of American lawyers, journalists and organizations can't sue to challenge the 2008 expansion of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) because they can't prove that the government will monitor their conversations along with those of potential foreign terrorist and intelligence targets.
