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.

Personal Knowledge Graphs on the Web
In today’s data-driven economy, the company with the most data wins. This means that companies go through great lengths to collect all of our data, sometimes even crossing ethical boundaries. But in the end, we all lose: having the best data process is not an indication of how well a company innovates or what value its services bring. As a result, innovation has come to a standstill, and people are stuck with mediocre data experiences. If data truly is the new oil, then what we’re currently doing is pouring all that oil in barrels—often without the ability to open the lid ourselves. In order for data to fuel the engine, it has to flow much better than it does today. In this talk, I will explain how the Solid project gives people back control over their personal knowledge graphs. In doing so, we enable small and large companies alike to innovate.
