[12:33] Janette Wong: I'm from Royal Bank of Canada (RBC) - introduced to this Summit by Michael Grüninger


  • Part I Knowledge Graph Foundations & Architecture This book addresses the topic of exploiting enterprise-linked data with a particular focus on knowledge construction and accessibility within enterprises. It identifies the gaps between the requirements of enterprise knowledge consumption and standard data consuming technologies by analyzing real-world use cases, and proposes the enterprise knowledge graph to fill such gaps. It provides concrete guidelines for effectively deploying linked-data graphs within and across business organizations. It is divided into three parts, focusing on the key technologies for constructing, understanding and employing knowledge graphs. Part 1 introduces basic background information and technologies, and presents a simple architecture to elucidate the main phases and tasks required during the lifecycle of knowledge graphs. Part 2 focuses on technical aspects; it starts with state-of-the art knowledge-graph construction approaches, and then discusses exploration and exploitation techniques as well as advanced question-answering topics concerning knowledge graphs. Lastly, Part 3 demonstrates examples of successful knowledge graph applications in the media industry, healthcare and cultural heritage, and offers conclusions and future visions.
  • Part II Constructing, Understanding and Consuming Knowledge Graphs
  • Part III Industrial Applications and Successful Stories.

[12:37] RaviSharma: Ken - Jeff Pan from Ontology Summit 2011

[12:41] RaviSharma: send out invitations next step for potential KG speakers from those listed.

[12:42] RaviSharma: Academic: Amit Sheth, Jeff Pan,

[12:49] ToddSchneider: Have to go.

[12:50] Gary: Candidate demo speaker Peter Haase who has a demo to show "how far we've come in the underlying platforms and technology to be able to create commercially useful knowledge graphs. It o straddles the commercial/research line using Open PHACTS style biomedical knowledge graph being built using SPARQL and api service wrappers.

[12:55] Gary: Have to go...

[12:56] RaviSharma: advertising and speakers

[12:56] RaviSharma: speakers and postings
