  • Each session should identify the primary theme (and secondary themes) being addressed. An attempt will be made to address the themes in the following order:     (2A4)
  1. Whence - History     (2A5)
  2. Who, Where, When - Use Cases     (2A6)
  3. Why - From data to business value     (2A7)
  4. How - Details of mechanics     (2A8)
  5. Whither - Future directions     (2A9)
  6. What - Synthesis sessions only     (2A10)
  • Each speaker will generally be scheduled for multiple weeks.     (2A11)
  • The next two Wednesdays are Christmas and New Year's Day. Other holiday seasons are nearly the same: Kwanzaa is the week between them, and חֲנוּכָּה (Hanukkah) starts a little earlier (next Sunday at sunset). Best wishes for the holidays to everyone!     (2A12)

Conference Call Information     (2B)

Participants     (2C)

Proceedings     (2D)

  • What: Overview and background for the summit sessions. All sessions will be explicitly or implicitly addressing this theme.     (2D1)
    • KGs are a vehicle for realizing the benefits of ontology engineering.     (2D1A)
    • KGs combine existing ideas in a package that frequently works in practice to deliver value for large organizations.     (2D1B)
    • KGs provide a new root metaphor and motivation that is driving interest in ontology engineering.     (2D1C)
    • This is driving investment in development, integration, interoperation and organization by large entities, both individual enterprises and entire industries.     (2D1D)
    • KGs can be an enabler for tools and methods from AI and semantic technologies.     (2D1E)
  • Who, Where, When     (2D3)
    • Use case specifics for individual enterprises and industries     (2D3A)
    • Vendors are developing technologies based on graph-based methods.     (2D5A)
    • A wide-spread graph-based culture is emerging, including conferences and training.     (2D5B)
    • The culture includes aspects such as `data thinking' and `ontological thinking'.     (2D5C)
    • Promotion of dialog to promote mutual understanding     (2D5D)
  • Whither     (2D6)

Discussion     (2D7)

[12:10] Jack Ring: How shall we warn about KG pathologies such as Faults (Quality (Zero Defects)), Failures, Fictions?     (2D7A)

[12:13] MikeBennett: @Jack sounds like a good talk title: 'Knowledge Graphs: Faults, Failures and Fictions'     (2D7B)

[12:15] MikeBennett: 'Knowledge Graphs: Whence and Whither?'     (2D7C)

[12:16] MikeBennett: Maybe these can be a series of talks that alliterates?     (2D7D)

[12:22] MikeBennett: There is a new non-profit called the Enterprise Knowledge Graph Foundation. We should invite them to present.     (2D7E)

[12:25] Mark Underwood @knowlengr: Mike- do they have a website yet?     (2D7F)

[12:27] RaviSharma: Mike - good suggestion     (2D7G)

[12:35] RaviSharma: It is a good reordering of what except investments twice?     (2D7H)

[12:41] janet singer: (Off of Jacks and Mikes points) KGs are a way to introduce people to the importance of working with both semantic technologies and general semantics principles     (2D7I)

[12:43] RaviSharma: Under the category WHY we could also address arriving at target results with or without the use of KGs using semantics / ontologies!     (2D7J)

[12:45] RaviSharma: sort of comparison of with use of KGs and without (using some other methodology than KGs)?     (2D7K)

[12:46] MikeBennett: @Janet that sounds good.     (2D7L)

[12:47] MikeBennett: @Ravi comparisons of with and without are a great thing to explore. I have banks asking for this kind of information.     (2D7M)

[12:48] Mark Underwood @knowlengr: W3C calls it linked data of course     (2D7N)

[12:48] Mark Underwood @knowlengr: That group is currently pretty active (I'm on the listserv)     (2D7O)

[12:51] MikeBennett: Standards is a good idea. So is linkages to various concepts and technologies i.e. semantic networks (Cog Science); AI and NLP; Linked Data (W3C); Ontology based applications (OWL) etc. There are standards for some of these but that's a distinct point.     (2D7P)

[12:56] Mark Underwood @knowlengr: @Mike +1     (2D7Q)

[13:05] Gary: Discussion of kickoff and how we will provide a vision of the sessions and issues.     (2D7R)

[13:05] Gary: Amit Sheth can provide some history of KGs, early in the sequence.     (2D7S)

[13:08] MikeBennett: Dave McComb - good speaker proposal.     (2D7T)

[13:08] MikeBennett: I know those guys     (2D7U)

[13:10] AlexShkotin: Have a nice time!     (2D7V)

[13:12] janet singer: Order: Kickoff, Whence - History, Who where when - Use Cases, Why from data to business value, Whither - future directions     (2D7W)

[13:15] janet singer: Forgot How - details of mechanics, maybe after Why and before Whither     (2D7X)
