Workshop on Best Practices and Dynamic Knowledge Graphs

Held at the 1st IBEROAMERICAN KNOWLEDGE GRAPHS AND SEMANTIC WEB CONFERENCE

Overview

The role of knowledge for machine understanding of natural phenomena and language has been growing during the last decade. Knowledge Graphs (KGs) have a large number of applications like semantic search, disambiguation of natural language, deep reasoning, machine reading, and text analytics. Additionally KG applied for Internet of Things use cases is an emerging topic, as demonstrated with iot.schema.org currently under development. However, the adoption of standards to create KG is not always consistent to make use of the full potential of the Open Web Platform’s ability to link one fact to another. This workshop intends to bring together researchers and practitioners that have faced and addressed the challenge of combining diverse methods for knowledge representations in different domains, and for different tasks with Knowledge Graphs by Linked Data experts with the goal of creating and sharing a set of best practices for generating and maintaining KGs.

This workshop aims at bringing together research and industry communities working on the different aspects of data semantics, and standards-based solutions for the Internet and Web of Things.

CALL FOR PAPERS

The role of knowledge for machine understanding of natural phenomena and language has been growing during the last decade. Knowledge Graphs (KG) are being widely used by companies such as Google, Facebook, Microsoft, Apple, etc. for this purpose to extract knowledge out of the vast amounts of information on the Web. Additionally KG applied for Internet of Things (IoT) use cases is an emerging topic, as demonstrated with iot.schema.org which is under development. Rapid growth in the Internet of Things (IoT) means that connected sensors and actuators will be inundating the Web infrastructure with data. Semantics is increasingly seen as a key enabler for integration of sensor data and the broader Web ecosystem. Building intelligent applications for everyday use is the long-cherished aim of Artificial Intelligence (AI). With numerous devices deployed and used in day-to-day applications including mobile phones, tablets, wearable and other connected sensing and actuation devices, collectively referred to as the Internet of Things (IoT). Thus, there is an unprecedented opportunity to develop contextually intelligent applications with far- reaching societal implications. They can deliver fine-grained services in various areas such as healthcare, manufacturing, transportation and social good. However, the adoption of standards to create KG is not always consistent to make use of the full potential of the Open Web Platform's ability to link one fact to another. There are several challenges such as how to design interoperable KGs to ensure reusability? How to measure the quality of KGs according to a set of qualitative criteria? Hence, there is a need to develop best practices to easily discover and reuse existing knowledge.

The purpose of the workshop is to discuss how Semantic Web standards and/or AI related techniques can help create and consume data in IoT following clear methodology to build intelligent applications. This workshop aims at bringing together research and industry communities working on the different aspects of data semantics, and standard-based solutions for the Internet and Web of Things.

Topics of interest include, but not limited to:

  1. Best practices for Knowledge Graph creation and maintenance
  2. Dynamic Knowledge Graphs curation and improvement
  3. Ontology evolution
  4. Knowledge Graph applications, and use cases
  5. Ontology, and data quality assessment methodologies and tools
  6. Ontology assessment metrics, ontology usability, ontology ranking, ontology evaluation, ontology creation methodology
  7. Knowledge Graph evaluation methodologies and tools
  8. Linked Data Quality assessment and improvement methodologies and tools
  9. Temporal knowledge extraction, knowledge evolution
  10. Knowledge Graph Embedding techniques
  11. Knowledge extraction using ontologies
  12. iot.schema.org, Knowledge Graph for Internet of Things (IoT)
  13. Ontology catalogs for Internet of Things (IoT)
  14. Semantic interoperability for Internet of Things (IoT)
  15. Machine Learning and Dynamic Knowledge Graph curation and evolution
  16. IoT application use cases in various domains: healthcare, smart agriculture, smart, transportation, robotics, industry 4.0, etc.
  17. Semantic Web used in constrained devices (e.g., mobile devices)
