This architecture demonstrates how to use knowledge mining in digital asset management.

Potential use cases

Given the amount of unstructured data created daily, many companies struggle to make use of or find information within their files. One of the key functions of a digital asset management system is to allow assets to be easily retrieved.

Knowledge mining can help with retrieval by providing a search index that enables users to quickly locate what they are looking for.


There are three steps in knowledge mining: ingest, enrich, and explore.

  • Ingest

    The ingest step aggregates content from a range of sources, including structured and unstructured data. For digital asset management, sources can be technical content like article and image archives, photos, videos, internal documents, marketing assets, and brochures.

  • Enrich

    The enrich step uses AI capabilities to extract information, find patterns, and deepen understanding. For example, you can enrich the content by using automatic image captioning and object detection with computer vision, celebrity recognition, language translation, and entity recognition.

  • Explore

    The explore step is exploring the data via search, existing business applications, or analytics solutions. For example, you can integrate the search index into a web site.
