Battle: Smart Tools for Effective CI/MI


Many CI/MI professionals struggle to get their job done – given the high complexity and a heavy workload!

The good news is that there are many smart tools available to help individuals to automate MI/CI routine jobs or for extending the envelope of tasks that individuals can handle.

In many cases, these tools even originate from related disciplines of CI/MI like analytics, data science, human resources, knowledge management, internet research & monitoring, project management, market research, (strategic) foresight, automatic knowledge extraction tools, big data analytics or semantic research.

  • Each practi­tioner will pre­sent a 5-minute showc­ase of their most re­com­mended tool.
  • After these pitches, we’ll open break­out rooms for each pre­sen­ter!
  • You can join any of these ses­sions to learn more about these tools and their prac­tical appli­cations.
  • At the end of the session, we’ll ask you to vote for the most use­ful and rele­vant CI/MI tools.
