Description

Search Improvements

Support for trilateral approach to Knowledge Search. Luma Knowledge now uses three unique search algorithms in parallel to find better information, improving Findability and reducing false negatives. Luma now uses Keywords and Metadata to search for relevant information. The results are enhanced with a full text search to ensure that the user is always presented with relevant information, even if the metadata is not set properly.

Improved Artifact Curation Process

The following are the improvements to the Artifact Curation process:

  1. Support for Automatic vocabulary generation. Luma Knowledge can now automatically generate vocabulary for a Knowledge Article, without the need for the manual vocabulary creation. Using the globally recognized vocabulary, Luma Knowledge can automatically generates the vocabulary for the metadata identified at the time of an artifact curation.

Feature

Description

Create Artifact from Web URLs and Documents

As a Curator / Administrator, you can create an Artifact using a document or a Web URL.  Luma Knowledge imports the information available on the provided sources and uses the information to generate a Knowledge base in the system.

 For more information refer Create Artifact using document or Web URL.

Create Artifacts from Predefined templates 

Luma Knowledge provides predefined Templates that can be used by a Curator to generate Artifacts. Using these Templates, Curator can manually create Knowledge Artifacts by adding information content and generating Ontology to extract metadata. 

For more information refer Create Artifact using Templates.  

Knowledge Graph

The knowledge graph is the visual representation of the topic and artifact entities available in  Luma Knowledge and the directional relationship between these entities. The graph provides the ability to search and navigate through the graphical view of connected artifacts, a visually navigable ontology. 

For more information refer Knowledge Graph

Semantic Analysis

Semantic Analysis is the process of understanding the implied or actual meaning of content in an Artifact.  Luma Knowledge generates Knowledge Ontology for an artifact during Semantic Analysis. The analysis aims at creating FAQs and identifying metadata for the artifacts curated in the system.

 For more information refer  Semantic Analysis.

Knowledge Store

Knowledge Store is the collection of Artifacts available in  Luma Knowledge. Every Artifact, created manually or using the predefined Templates, is listed in the Knowledge Store. Once the Semantic Analysis is successfully run on the Artifact and Ontology is generated, the Artifact starts appearing in the Knowledge Store.

For more information refer  Knowledge Store.

Manage and Publish artifact

 

As a Curator, you can review, update, and publish the Knowledge available in the system. As a Curator, you can add new QnA pairs and Metadata to an Artifact to keep system up to date, improved, and is accessible to users. Once the contents of the Artifact are reviewed, you can  Publish artifact to make it available for End Users.

For more information refer Edit and Publish Artifact section in Knowledge Store.

Search Widget

Luma Knowledge enables end-users to search for Knowledge available in the system by Title, Topic, or by simple phrases using Search Widget. This is a search engine that provides meta-data based knowledge search.

For more information refer  Knowledge Search.

Luma Knowledge DashBoard

The Dashboard provides Key Performance Metrics in terms of Artifacts Usage, Money, and the value that brings to the organization. It enables a System Administrator to view the key metrics related to Artifacts retrieval, User Request Insights, and Channel performance in Luma Knowledge.

For more information refer  Luma Knowledge Dashboard

User administration

User Management Module in Luma Knowledge enables Administrators to create Users, View and Search Users.

Retire artifact

Based on feedback from End Users and accessibility of an Artifact, Curator can retire an Artifact that is no longer required in the system. When an Artifact is Retired, related FAQs are also retired. However, the Artifact and FAQs continue to appear in Search Results. 

For more information refer to Retire an Artifact section in Knowledge Store.

Delete artifact

A curator can delete the Artifact from the system if an Artifact contains incorrect details or causes ambiguity. Artifact Deletion is an irreversible process. Once deleted, the Artifact cannot be retrieved.

For more information refer Delete  an Artifact section in Knowledge Store

Explicit and Implicit Feedback

A key feature in Luma Knowledge is the continuous Artifact improvement process which is achieved through User’s Feedback. Feedback is obtained directly from End-users on the Artifacts presented as Search Results or inferred from the user’s interaction with System. The information gathered is used to derive the effectiveness and usefulness of the content available in the system.

For more information refer  Knowledge Search.
