Knowledge Creation through Multimodal Communication

Marcus Berliant and Masahisa Fujita

MPRA Paper from University Library of Munich, Germany

Abstract: Knowledge creation either in isolation or joint with another person, using either face to face or internet contact, incorporating internet search ability is analyzed. In addition to formal knowledge, tacit knowledge plays an essential role in the knowledge production process. The introduction of tacit knowledge increases the productivity of knowledge workers dramatically. The framework is applied to pandemic restrictions on face to face communication; workers with longer commutes experience less of a relative productivity loss from restrictions than workers with shorter commutes.
