Knowledge Graphs and Ontologies Meet & Greet

Knowledge graphs and ontologies have proven to be powerful tools to manage and gain insight from enterprise data and big data in many different sectors of industry. They are often used in semantic search, automated fraud detection, intelligent chatbots, advanced drug discovery, dynamic risk analysis, content-based recommendation engines and knowledge management systems.

While many may disagree on a formal definition of knowledge graphs, OMG has been busy creating standards for ontologies, like APIs for Knowledge Platforms (AP4KP), MOF to RDF Structural Mapping in Support of Linked Open Data (MOF2RDF), Ontology Definition Metamodel (ODM), Distributed Ontology, Model and Specification Language (DOL), FIBO (Financial Industry Business Ontology), FIGI (Financial Instrument Global Identifier ), SBRM (Standard Business Report Model) IEF (Information Exchange Framework), and ontologies for the retail industry and the robotics industry.

Come meet OMG ontologists for an evening of discussion about the potential for knowledge graphs and ontologies to change how organizations view data and make decisions for their business.
