DoD and Federal Knowledge Management: Enabling Discovery of Legacy Data Using Knowledge Graphs at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL)
Wednesday, April 27, 2022: 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM
The United States conducted over one thousand nuclear weapons tests between 1945 and 1992. With the observance of the 1992 Nuclear Explosion Testing Moratorium beginning in September 1992, the focus of laboratories that had previously been invested in nuclear testing work shifted. Now, to maintain the nuclear stockpile, scientists and engineers at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) and other NNSA labs rely on data created between 1945 and 1992 to inform their work. This talk will discuss knowledge management efforts in support of stockpile stewardship at LLNL, including knowledge graph design, document management practices, scanning & digitization efforts, and what it means to have “living datasets” that are over 75 years old.
