Taxonomy Tutorial with Semantic Web Company

Foundation for a Knowledge Graph: Taxonomy Design Best Practices

How does a Data & Knowledge Engineer who has been working with taxonomies for over 25 years create and design a taxonomy? Learn how to set up and maintain a taxonomy with Semantic Web Company’s Heather Hedden at the Knowledge Graph Conference

While taxonomies are central to a powerful knowledge organization system, one that is made without proper training or understanding can yield poor results. Don’t waste the taxonomy’s potential by guessing your way through – hear directly from a taxonomy expert and benefit from the following takeaways:

  • Understand the diversity of knowledge organization systems and their specific business cases
  • Gather helpful resources for developing a taxonomy
  • Develop concepts and labels that best serve users
  • Construct taxonomy relationships according to best practices and standards
  • Leverage the relationship between a well-developed taxonomy and ontology

This tutorial is meant for all users, so you don’t have to be experienced with taxonomy construction to keep up! Along with extensive presentation on the taxonomy and its uses, this 4-hour tutorial will consist of interactive audience activities. Join Heather to learn the fundamentals of a successful taxonomy.
