SEMANTiCS Vienna 2022

Hybrid Event | Vienna & Online, September 13-15, 2022

SEMANTiCS conference is the leading European conference on Semantic Technologies and AI. Researchers, industry experts and business leaders can develop a thorough understanding of trends and application scenarios in the fields of Machine Learning, Data Science, Linked Data and Natural Language Processing. The 17th edition will be hosted this year in Vienna.

As gold sponsors, we have a representative delegation giving talks and waiting for you at our PoolParty booth. Look at all the options you have: 

Knowledge Engineering of Taxonomies, Thesauri, and Ontologies

This tutorial teaches the fundamentals and best practices for creating quality taxonomies, thesauri, and ontologies in any industry. Emphasis will be on serving users and use cases, rather than on theory. Topics to be covered include: different kinds of knowledge organization systems (taxonomies, thesauri, ontologies, etc.), Semantic Web standards and other standards, linking knowledge organization systems, and enriching a taxonomy or thesaurus to become an ontology and a knowledge graph.

Tuesday, September 13, 2022 – 09:45 to 13:00 (Tutorial at DBpedia Day)

Heather Hedden, Data & Knowledge Engineer, Semantic Web Company, USA, and author of The Accidental Taxonomist

1st Workshop on Semantic AI

While the individual aspects of semantic AI are being studied in their respective research communities a dedicated community focusing on their combination is yet to be established. The proposed workshop intends to contribute to this endeavor.

Tuesday, September 13, 2022 – 14:00 to 17:30 (Workshop at DBpedia Day)

Knowledge-based Recommendation Systems as a Cornerstone of the Digital Workplace

There is a great need for intelligent assistants in digital workplaces, and this more than ever, considering the increasing degree of decentralization in the post-Corona era.||||Recommendation systems are well known through their use in e-commerce platforms, but there they often achieve only too low a degree of precision and relevance, since they only follow the principle of “more of the same” based on “collaborative filtering”.

Applying Semantic AI platforms for Augmented Intelligence

In recent years, augmented intelligence systems have advanced to provide humans with insights for knowledge discovery and decision making. Using a cooperative approach, these systems use powerful artificial intelligence (AI) to augment human cognitive activities. To do so, the AI capabilities have to complement human actions and therefore be explainable and controllable, while still providing implicit insights based on statistical models. Semantic Artificial Intelligence (Semantic AI), as the combination of machine learning and knowledge models, provides such a methodology.

The Global Knowledge Graph Market: State of Play and Upcoming Trends

The Knowledge Graph market has developed into a highly dynamic area, especially in the last three years. No longer the ‘if’ or ‘why’, but the ‘how’ and ‘when exactly’ have become the central questions. Numerous application fields and industrial processes that already use graph technologies and plan to use them in the near future benefit from numerous technical developments.

Multilingual Taxonomies and Knowledge Graphs as a Basis for Semantic AI Applications

The domain of taxonomies and ontologies is to structure and enrich data. This makes the data searchable, findable, usable, and, moreover, the basis for AI applications. Terminology as the “counterpart” is responsible for ensuring that both data and metadata in the company are uniform and thus reusable and linkable. We show how taxonomy and terminology together make corporate data fit for the future, and how you can build taxonomies and knowledge graphs alongside classic terminologies. We give concrete examples of how these can be implemented in practice.

Semi-automated Generation of Multilingual Domain-specific Taxonomies

The use of and need for domain-specific taxonomies are rapidly augmenting, as part of the growing interest in multilingual knowledge management. However, creating a fine taxonomy for any domain or industry use case can require many months of intensive expert work. To face this challenge, we converge human created and curated data with automated processes and a Knowledge Graph tool. Namely, we apply cross-lingual lexicographic content from KD-Lexicala with Semantic Web Company’s PoolParty Semantic Suite to generate multilingual domain-specific taxonomies.
