International Journal of Conversational Data and Knowledge Engineering (CDKE)


"Traditional" data engineering considers the storage, retrieval, manipulation, and management of structured, semi-structured, and unstructured data; and "traditional" knowledge engineering addresses the derivation and management of knowledge from the data. Conversational Data & Knowledge Engineering (CDKE) on one hand extends data engineering and knowledge engineering to address visual and verbal conversations with (possibly deep) context. On the other hand it supports a visual and/or verbal conversational interface for complex problem solving.
