We are a sponsor of Data Day Texas 2023, scheduled for January 28, 2023, in Austin, Texas.

SWC Data and Knowledge Engineer Heather Hedden will lead a 90-minute tutorial on Taxonomies for Data Scientists followed by a 45-minute hands-on session.

This tutorial teaches the fundamentals and best practices for creating quality taxonomies, whether for the enterprise or for specific knowledge bases in any industry. Emphasis is on serving users rather than on theory. Topics to be covered include: the appropriateness of different kinds of knowledge organization systems (taxonomies, thesauri, ontologies, etc.), standards, taxonomy best practices, and the connection of taxonomies to ontologies.

After the main 90-minute tutorial there will be a 45-minute optional hands-on workshop for those who want a deeper dive into taxonomy creation. This will focus on identifying concepts, determining preferred and alternative labels, and creating hierarchical and associative relationships.

Part 1 (90 minutes)

  • Introduction to taxonomies and their relevance to data
  • Comparisons of taxonomies, ontologies and knowledge organization systems
  • Standards for taxonomies and knowledge organization systems
