The Knowledge Graph Cookbook was published during a book launch webinar which took place on April 22, 2020. The book explains why organizations need a knowledge graph and the best ways to build one.

The story behind the book

There are countless articles, slide decks and videos on the Internet about knowledge graphs. The topic is examined from different perspectives, e.g., from the point of view of artificial intelligence or in the context of extended possibilities for data analysis or information retrieval. Various standards, methods and technologies are suggested to the reader, and the moment of overstrain and disorientation, typical for the arrival of new technologies, quickly arises—so one wonders: “isn’t there a step-by-step recipe out there for how to create a knowledge graph like there is for classic dishes like Wiener schnitzel?”
