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.

Modeling Real Estate Ecosystem with Cherre's Knowledge Graph
Cherre’s knowledge graph is a model of the entire US real estate ecosystem. The graph incorporates hundreds of millions of entities such as properties, addresses, individual and commercial owners, lenders, brokers, estate managers, lawyers etc. as nodes – while the edges are various types of connections between the entities. A wealth of attributes are associated with each entity. Cherre’s knowledge graph is a closed-world graph: it allows inferring an absence of connection between two entities if there is no edge between them in the graph. Furthermore, Cherre’s graph is temporal: edges and nodes are being added and deleted on a timely basis. Some of the main challenges in constructing a closed-world graph from noisy data sources are entity resolution and disambiguation. In this talk, we will present parallel algorithms for entity resolution and disambiguation in Cherre’s knowledge graph, and outline our current work on assessing entity similarities using (temporal) node embedding.
