Knowledge Graphs

Data integration is not just a technology problem. Turning information into knowledge often requires stitching together content from disparate sources and different formats, into a data fabric that focuses on the connected nature of data and it's context. This makes it possible to process, navigate and visualize information in new ways improving human cognition and decision making.

Knowledge graphs are specialized data structures that capture the business meaning of data using ordniary terms and relationships understood by users. They provide cognitive context to decision makers by representing connections between real-world things, such as people, organizations, concepts or digital assets. Knowledge in a graph can be defined explicitly as links or implicitly inferred by using Machine Learning techniques that can discover relationships across many data sources.

What Problem Does This Solve?

Knowledge graphs can capture information about the world in an intuitive way that is often easier to understand, navigate and use than other data models. They provide data discovery, search and analysis using a common, SQL-like syntax. A knowledge graph combines data models and semantics, connecting information from disparate sources, and letting users make beter decisions by finding relevant information faster.

Links between graph entities may be defined as semantic types, allowing users to query data by their relationships instead of matching values. Relationships can be direct or based on Semagraph lookups, Text Search, Classification models, or Inference Query offering a variety of powerful techniques for graph building. Knowledge Graphs address the following data integration challenges:

1. Combine Data from Disparate Silos or Sources

2. Bring Together Structured and Unstructured Data

3. Make Better Decisions by Finding Things Faster

Knowledge graphs can drive business impact in a variety of different settings including: Drivers Digital workplace (e.g., collaboration, sharing and insight). ■ Automation (e.g., ingestion of data from content to RPA). ■ Machine learning (e.g., augmenting training data). ■ Investigative analysis (e.g., law enforcement, cybersecurity or financial transactions). ■ Digital commerce (e.g., product information management and recommendations). ■ Data management (e.g., metadata management, data cataloging and data fabric).

A data fabric is a modern data architecture that accelerates new and emerging business use cases such as customer 360, customer intelligence, fraud detection, and advanced analytics. To best enable the data fabric, a semantic model is necessary to associate all related data, source agnostic, with a common language any person can understand. The knowledge graph blends data models and semantics to make all data and content readily consumable.
