Topics: Knowledge Graphs: The Who, What, Where, When, Why and How
Knowledge graphs have emerged as a core AI technology in recent years, starting from the Google Knowledge Graph. Now, most major companies, such as Uber and Amazon, implement some form of knowledge graph technology, and numerous start-ups have emerged in this space as well. This webinar will speak to what knowledge graphs ‘mean’, in various communities and corporations, and what kinds of problems can be attacked using knowledge graphs. Ultimately, the webinar is intended to help you understand knowledge graphs better, and to decide whether you should use this technology for your problem.
