The amount of available data decision-makers need to consider increases rapidly every day. Furthermore, most of these people work in interdisciplinary teams where knowledge needs to be incorporated not only from one research field but from a wide variety of areas. Finding the relevant information in such diverse environments is difficult if the person does not know exactly where to look. Moreover formulating questions to query either unfamiliar areas or areas that are completely unknown is difficult if not impossible. We propose to employ the concept of bisociation to address these challenges.
