Knowledge Graphs (KG) are rapidly gaining ground as a representation of choice for modeling highly linked data! If done well, using OWL to define the KG's metamodel allows for the meaning of the concepts to be sharable, unambiguous, deeply logical, consistent, and capable of inferring new knowledge via automated reasoners. However, ""doing an OWL model well"" is often pretty difficult. That's where gist can help. gist is Semantic Arts’ minimalist upper ontology, designed to provide the maximum coverage of typical business concepts with the fewest number of primitives. As such, it creates a great starting point for any new semantic KG project.
In this talk, we will:
- Introduce gist
- Give some small case studies of how it has jump-started many of our real-world KG projects
- Offer some Q&A time to ask questions about gist
- Explain how you can get involved in using and contributing to gist
