Semantic similarity for faster Knowledge Graph delivery at scale

A Talk by Vassil Momtchev (CTO, Product Owner, Ontotext)

About this Talk

Knowledge graphs promise a novel platform for better holistic decision making and analytics. Many projects fail to reach their full potential because of the prohibitively high cost of integrating new knowledge from the required information sources.

The talk explains the concept of semantic similarity as a tool for efficient entity clustering and matching based on graph and text embeddings. It will demonstrate the underlying scalable and easy to understand algorithm of Random Indexing.

This work is part of the Ontotext Platform, which increases productivity in developing and maintaining large scale knowledge graphs. The platform enables enterprises to develop and operate on top of such mission-critical systems for decision support, information discovery and metadata management.
