Professor Solovyova K. O. is a scientific adviser for term papers and masters’ theses etc. He works as a scientific adviser for masters’ degree theses at the Social Informatics Department.

Scientific Work

Scientific interest is the new scientific school “Noospheric Methodologies and Technologies of Solving Knowledge Management and Competitive Intelligence Problems”; its scientific advisers are a correspondent member of the NAS of Ukraine, Honoured Science and Technology Worker of Ukraine, Doctor of Technical Sciences, Professor Bondarenko M. F. and Doctor of Technical Sciences, Professor Solovyova K. O.

The relevant scientific school refers to the new information knowledge-oriented area which is thriving abroad and is closely related to the important areas of competitive growth and stable organization (state, human) development, the new class complicated ill-structured quality tasks, information society formation. It is based upon new unique systemological methodology and powerful systemological knowledge-oriented cognitive methods of noospheric stage of scientific development.

The main aspects of scientific work are systemological methods development and application in knowledge management; new deep knowledge classification, systematization and obtaining; ontology engineering; intellectual capital and knowledge economy analyses and development; competitive intelligence (information consolidation), business modeling; organization (human etc.) mission and strategy setting, quality decision making support and other spheres.

Scientific achievements are the new method of systemological classification analyses and natural classification criteria, which allow to obtain new knowledge; to systematize and model profound conceptual knowledge basing upon objects essential (and substantial) properties in an adequate and objective way; to develop ontologies of low-structured subject domains in order to improve knowledge-oriented systems and technologies efficiency, knowledge management, competitive growth and organization, society and human development.

Professor Solovyova K. O. managed many state budget and contractual research scientific works, worked as a contact person in many research scientific projects and now is a scientific adviser for 260-6 research scientific project. She is the scientific adviser for candidates of sciences in specialties 01.05.04 – “System Analyses and Optimal Decision Theory”, 05.13.23 – “Artificial Intelligence Systems and Means” and 05.13.06 – “Automatized Data Management Systems and Progressive Information Technologies” (Voronoy M. F., Nesterenko O. A., Kulybaba V. V.) and for post-graduate students (Frolov M. Y., Lashyna O. M., Danylov A. D. etc.). She has worked as an opponent for doctor’s and candidate’s theses. She has been a scientific adviser for students’ researches and has many joint publications with students (including international ones) and much appreciation for this kind of work at the university.
