Ivanov and Midkiff to Speak at the Cognitive Computing Summit 2018 in Boston, MA

EK consultants Yanko Ivanov and James Midkiff will be delivering a presentation titled “Knowledge Graphs as a Pillar to AI” at the upcoming Cognitive Computing Summit 2018 being held on May 22-23 in Boston, MA. Ivanov and Midkiff explore the framework that ontologies provide for enterprise knowledge graphs, show how semantic layers complement traditional information models, and demonstrate how semantic knowledge models can be used as a basis for text mining.

“The topics of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning have become increasingly popular in recent years. Yet, Knowledge Management as a field has thus far inexplicably lagged in leveraging these technologies to help organizations turn their knowledge in a competitive advantage. We are thrilled to have the opportunity to share our thoughts and experience in leveraging advanced and cutting edge technologies to achieve that” said Ivanov. Midkiff added, “Ontologies and graph databases provide the foundation for a knowledge graph. Organizations can leverage knowledge graphs to support data analytics, recommendation engines, or even chatbots that can help them discover, interpret, and understand their content.”
