Connecting the Knowledge Ecosystem Founded in 2019 at Columbia University, The Knowledge Graphs Conference is emerging as the premiere source of learning around knowledge graph technologies. We believe knowledge graphs are an underutilized yet essential force for solving complex societal challenges like climate change, democratizing access to knowledge and opportunity, and capturing business value made possible by the AI revolution.
KGC bridges the gap between industry, which is increasingly recognizing the necessity of integrated data, and academia, where semantic technologies have been developing for over twenty years. Our events, education, content, and community efforts facilitate meaningful exchange between diverse groups, and increase awareness, development and adoption of this powerful technology.
Conference – bridging the gap between research and industry
We organize workshops and tutorials to progress a number of Tech4Good themes, targeting objectives such as the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and the development of a COVID-19 vaccine. At our most recent conference, 530 attendees participated, representing over thirty industries across forty-two countries. Speakers ranged from Bell Labs pioneer John Sowa to Morgan Stanley, AstraZeneca, and leading academics from Europe and USA. A variety of workshops and tutorials were also given, including several on tech4good themes–from the UN SDGs to personal health graphs and fake news.
KGC Vision and Values
Our goal is to build the community and become a leading source of learning around knowledge graphs.
We will achieve this by engaging and convening industry leaders and innovators, across sectors.
We will focus on the diversity of perspectives:
Professional Diversity: Industry practitioners, Business Users, Faculty, Scientists, Students
Gender & Age diversity
We will gather, share and publish content to increase learning.
We will build the community online and in-person through our content, meetups and conferences.

Branimir Rakic | OriginTrail: Decentralized Knowledge Graph
Knowledge graphs are powerful tools used by organizations to integrate their siloed data into useful, machine readable information for a wide range of purposes. The OriginTrail Decentralized Knowledge Graph (DKG) extends this approach to enable trusted knowledge exchange between multiple organizations, marrying knowledge graph technology with DLT and blockchain frameworks to enable 4 Is - interoperability, interconnectivity, integrity and incentivisation. Based on W3C and GS1 standards, the open source OriginTrail DKG is hosted on the OriginTrail Decentralized Network, operated by hundreds of organizations and individuals around the globe and built to utilize a multitude of blockchains such as Ethereum and Polkadot.
In 2021, the DKG is being extended with tools such as trusted knowledge tokens, knowledge wallets, knowledge marketplaces and knowledge tenders to enable incentivised, trusted knowledge exchange, which will together with the OriginTrail DKG be presented during the talk at Knowledge Graph Conference 2021.
Our speaker is Branimir Rakic, co founder and CTO of TraceLabs who are the core developers of OriginTrail. OriginTrail is a decentralized knowledge graph which allows companies to create their own knowledge graphs rather than using a public knowledge graph. Branimir talks about how OriginTrail allows frictionless movement in growth as companies are not forced to use a database that is distributed. #knowledgegraphs #knowledgegraphconference #knowledgegraphtools #knowledgegraphuses
