Knowledge graphs and graph technologies are among the fastest-growing segments of the AI market, and are probably the most forward-looking information technologies companies are currently dealing with. With graph technologies a new era of data management begins, in which the roles of business, development, and database engineering have to be rethought. At the same time, graph technologies play a prominent role in so many areas of data management that the overview can quickly be lost.
In this tutorial we will take a closer look at different fields of application of knowledge graphs, which include:
- Data quality management
- Data preparation (e.g. for machine learning applications)
- Data integration
- Text Mining and Advanced Data Analysis
- Enterprise-wide data governance
This tutorial also provides a comprehensive overview of the underlying concepts behind knowledge graphs and graph databases. Use cases and hands-on sessions provide a practice-oriented introduction to the topic, and provide knowledge about concrete methods and pitfalls that can be important for the implementation of knowledge graphs and Semantic AI applications.
