The first view is about knowledge generally. But the second view is

What word (adjective) or adjectival phrase to put in the blank?
“Specific” doesn’t sound specific enough. (Pun intended)
And I don’t know if “Domain-specific” can be used in the above sentence.
One fairly common way to say this is more narrowly scoped (an adjectival phrase).
scope 1 noun …
- The extent of a given activity or subject that is involved, treated, or relevant: the scope of the debate … Synonyms … range
(the senses of the verb and participial adjective follow).
narrow: adjective …
- Limited in area or scope [AHD]
(again, the sense of the adjective-modifier [traditionally ‘adverb’] follows).
The phrase has become a reasonably strong collocation; examples from the internet are:
Narrowly scoped subset-analyses were performed additionally for
living-donor transplants, pediatric transplants, as well as cases with
prolonged cold ischemic time (CIT).
Outsourcing contracts are trending toward smaller deals. Outsourcing
firms should also consider establishing more narrowly scoped
relationships [Supply Chain Focused Manufacturing Planning and
Control By W. C.
More precisely targeted and more precisely directed are also idiomatic.
