Assistance tools to build taxonomy of skills and to search for experts

In many applications, we need to find the right person with the required expertise (skills) for some task. To enable this, it is necessary to extract and organize the skills of different persons in a taxonomy. This project aims at developing a taxonomy of skills for the National Bank of Canada. Currently, a small taxonomy has been created manually by experts, but it is far from being complete. Many skills and their variants are missing. The project will construct tools to extract skills from the profiles of the employees. New skills extracted are used to complement the manually created taxonomy. The taxonomy of skills will be used later for expert search – to find the appropriate persons for a task.
