Document clustering for knowledge synthesis and project portfolio funding decision in R&D organizations

Kumar, Abhishek ; Kumar, Naresh ; Gupta, Richa


The paper discusses a method of using document clustering for information/knowledge synthesis and decision facilitation in R&D organisations. The emerging methodologies of machine learning, artificial intelligence and data science in conjunction with fuzzy mathematics can be optimally exploited to catalyse development of information bank for research organisations. This knowledge ecosystem can be utilized by the proposed mechanism to accelerate and reinforce interdisciplinary research for R&D organisations and empower them to make efficacious information-driven decisions related to project portfolio selection and proposal funding.
