Everything you wanted to know about taxonomies but were afraid to ask

Join taxonomy experts for a half-day virtual boot camp covering the basics of taxonomy creation on 26 April 2023.

Exploring the field of taxonomies? Interested in becoming a taxonomist? Need a refresher? Not sure where to begin? Bite-sized Taxonomy Boot Camp has answers for you! On Wednesday 26 April 2023, you can join Boot Camp BASICS and learn from veteran taxonomist and author of The Accidental Taxonomist, Heather Hedden. As she wrote in her book, taxonomies remain relevant in today’s AI-infused world. Search algorithms, text analytics, and deep learning have not replaced taxonomies. At their heart, taxonomies function as knowledge organisational systems. And no one knows this better than Hedden.

Boot Camp BASICS is a virtual half-day event in which Hedden introduces some basic concepts, covers the benefits of taxonomies to organisations, explains different applications, and reviews more advanced elements of taxonomy creations. Of particular interest is the extended question and answer segment in which both Hedden and host Helen Lippell will happily answer whatever queries Boot Camp BASICS delegates throw at them in an “Ask Us Anything” format.
