Knowledge graphs (KGs) have momentum as expressive data structures to represent the convergence of data and knowledge spread across various data sources. Albeit coined by the research community for several decades, KGs play an increasingly relevant role in scientific and industrial areas.

In challenging times, ensuring financial integrity and fairer distribution of services by reducing disparities are among the top priorities for social and health-care systems globally.

Robots operating in the real world require sophisticated Visual Intelligence (VI), to be able to make sense of the variety of situations they may encounter. Computationally, the basic capability here has to do with Object Recognition – as a minimum, a visually intelligent robot needs to be able to recognise the content of its observations.

Mathieu D'Aquin

In this presentation, I will show through a number of examples how Linked Open Data, and especially DBpedia, have contributed to AI by making it possible to create intelligent, open domain applications, i.e. applications which do not have a fixed domain, or for which this domain is not known in advance. This was made evident through a number of high profile applications (e.g.

“Code is Law” – three famous words of Professor Lawrence Lessig back in 1999, when the Internet as the first important “cyberspace” emerged. This raised fundamental questions about how Code will impact our legal environment. Since then IT has further moved into our lives and now eventually reaches out to the legal profession. Major questions raised since then are still valid.

Michael Pöttschacher

How one can link structured to unstructured data to get a holistic view and generate more insights.

Matthias Lichtenthaler

Specifically trained bots - driven by Semantic Analytics and Artifical Intelligence  - can identify substantial contradictions and other inconsistencies within tons of structured and unstructured data.

Javier D. Fernández

Ten years into Linked Data there are still many unresolved challenges towards arriving at a truly machine-readable and decentralized stage that would make the promised vision of a Web of Data come true. In this talk we will review the current state of affairs and highlight the key technical and non-technical challenges to the success of LOD.

Allan Hanbury

How serious can a missing document on a search result list be? For certain people that conduct search as part of their profession, a missing search result could lead to litigation or death. This talk will examine search tasks in two such professional domains: Intellectual Property and Medicine, covering the challenges inherent in search in these domains.

Ivo Willems

How do you convince a well-run IT department to expand its horizon into the world of Semantics? How can you explain to business users the need to incorporate Semantics? What are the types of investments one has to make to start? What are the tools/techniques that best support Semantics and fit withing our organization?
