Ontology Summit 2020 Current State Working Group

  • How graph persistence mechanisms are being used.
  • What are the best practices?
  • What is the Current usage of DOL in Knowledge Graphs?
  • In the proposed Organization listed below, the attempt will be to identify current state (Applications, Techniques, Use cases, etc.) as listed for various speakers and emphasis will also be on current use and definitions such as What is a KG? ....
