Re:Know (Revolution of Knowledge Work) is a research project that aims to create information-seeking and sense-making methods for a revolution in knowledge work. Currently vast amounts of information are scattered around in various data silos. The existing systems and search engines have too inflexible views to the data and have a limited ability to study large data masses. Instead of supporting knowledge work the current systems constraint it.

Re:Know aims to develop Symbiotic Human-Information Interfaces which pave the way for a revolution of knowledge work. These human-information interfaces utilize heterogenous data sources, are context-aware, user controlled, explanation giving and interactive.

By mixing human creativity and the capability of computers to handle data, Re:Know supports human cognition, freeing the knowledge worker’s time to sense-making, collaboration and creative thinking. The project combines the multidisciplinary world-class expertise in machine learning, human-computer interaction, distributed computing, cognitive neuroergonomics and human factors at work, available within Helsinki Institute for Information Technology HIIT and the Finnish Institute of Occupational Health.

The Digital Health Revolution-initiative is built around the belief that a revolution is needed in personal healthcare. Health care needs to be personalized and proactive for the benefit of individuals, society and business.

Intelligent and systematic combination of data from different sources and the creation of MyData will offer new opportunities for personalized health care. This will change healthcare processes and customer applications for health promotion and self-care.

Currently the Digital Health Revolution pilot study is developing a next-generation health check-up that combines data about an individual’s state of health from different sources. The long term goal is to study whether returning this data along with individuals lifestyle coaching can contribute to the health of the participants and improve their motivation to change their lifestyles.
