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.
While 2.5 quintillion bytes of data were produced every day in 2021, this number is expected to grow exponentially in the coming years. With the constantly increasing flow of data, organisations, particularly those in the Global South, are struggling to process, structure, use, and share the data...
Towards a Knowledge Graph Framework for ESG Supply Chain Analysis
"Sustainability and any kind of ESG related topics also present several challenges and opportunities in the area of sustainability reporting and auditing. Reasons for this may be the lack of a central database, but also the difficulties in the technical evaluation of this data. For this reason, w...

Supporting ESG strategies with enterprise recommender systems and KGs
ESG (Environmental, Social, Governance) is increasingly becoming the central guiding principle for companies in all industries. ESG need not remain an imposed compliance constraint for companies, but can also provide a wealth of opportunities and ideas for how organizations can evolve.
Presentation covers a technology used to automate Knowledge extraction from Text. This novel technology blends neural language models, semantic tech, rule systems, linguistic theory to achieve reliable extraction performance. Specifically, the dicussion will focus on the work done together with D...
