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.

Duane Forrester | Your Future in Search is Built on Knowledge Graphs
The future of search is already known, and it's built on Knowledge Graphs. From a business' POV, we'll explore the focus of search engines today, why KGs are so integral and examine the benefits of building your own site around a knowledge graph. From increases in customer retention, conversion and satisfaction, we'll see how this approach works. If you want to improve your user experience, there's an impact. If you want to decrease support costs and build consumer confidence - and impact reviews - we'll see how a KG-based approach works. There is a lot of work to do, but in today's world of search, the systems are complex and deep...and simple models of managing websites, content and search from years passed simply won't keep up.
Development and growth of search is going to be through the use of knowledge graphs, that is what our speaker Duane Forrester believes is the future of data search.
Duane Forrester is the VP at a company called Yext, a company that operates in the area of online brand management. Duane believes that the website user experience is currently very fractured in that sometimes searches aren't exactly what people want. Duane provides information on history of the introduction of knowledge graphs to Google and the introduction helps user experience to be improved. By allowing customers control the path allows trust to be built between customer and the business, this can be done through a knowledge graph based data strategy which Duane explains in this video today. #knowledgegraphs #knowledgegraphconference #knowledgegraphsearchengine #knowledgegraphsearch
