Introduction to Sensemaker

This video presents the conceptual underpinnings of the SenseMaker® Suite. The software and linked methods allow the collection and signifying of multiple sense-making fragments which can be anecdotes, pictures, web sites, blogs and other forms of unstructured data.

The signification provides sophisticated metadata which can be used to provide quantitative research material, as well as measurement systems and impact analysis. Visualisation tools, linked to methods and models, permit users to sense complex patterns and anomalies that would not be visible to conventional analysis.

SenseMaker® is fully integrated with a coherent body of formal methods and is the outcome of several years of research into human-based organizational complexity, sensemaking, and decision making. Recently Cognitive Edge announced the release of SenseMaker® Collector 3.1 along with an iOS app.
