Knowledge Hubs to Master your Enterprise
Knowledge hubs provide integrated and holistic views of the originally siloed and disjointed information scattered throughout an organization. Knowledge hubs are built on a knowledge graph, which can be understood as a multi-dimensional search index that can even be used to uncover hidden knowledge.
Developing Knowledge Graphs to form the base of a solid Knowledge Hub
In this webinar, two pioneers and experienced company founders and CEOs explain the strategic importance of developing knowledge graphs in the enterprise as an essential building block for any information architecture and AI strategy.
Knowledge graphs are not only the foundation for knowledge hubs, but also for many other cognitive applications (document intelligence, recommender systems, …) that your company is probably currently planning to develop or has already developed. Using different use cases, we will describe how knowledge hubs can be used and how the underlying knowledge graphs are furthermore used in different industries.
We will also present the key success factors in developing, operating and evolving knowledge graphs, which make a real difference compared to mainstream enterprise search:
- Formal domain knowledge that allows for intelligent interpretation of the meaning of the information and deriving deeper insights
- Semantic metadata that augments documents, and other information artifacts, with formal descriptions using, and referring to, the domain knowledge model
- Text analysis tools that allow for the automatic generation of the semantic metadata
- Tools for evaluation of the text analysis models and quality control
- Enterprise-grade storage and indexing infrastructure
