Connecting the Knowledge Ecosystem Founded in 2019 at Columbia University, The Knowledge Graphs Conference is emerging as the premiere source of learning around knowledge graph technologies. We believe knowledge graphs are an underutilized yet essential force for solving complex societal challenges like climate change, democratizing access to knowledge and opportunity, and capturing business value made possible by the AI revolution.
KGC bridges the gap between industry, which is increasingly recognizing the necessity of integrated data, and academia, where semantic technologies have been developing for over twenty years. Our events, education, content, and community efforts facilitate meaningful exchange between diverse groups, and increase awareness, development and adoption of this powerful technology.
Conference – bridging the gap between research and industry
We organize workshops and tutorials to progress a number of Tech4Good themes, targeting objectives such as the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and the development of a COVID-19 vaccine. At our most recent conference, 530 attendees participated, representing over thirty industries across forty-two countries. Speakers ranged from Bell Labs pioneer John Sowa to Morgan Stanley, AstraZeneca, and leading academics from Europe and USA. A variety of workshops and tutorials were also given, including several on tech4good themes–from the UN SDGs to personal health graphs and fake news.
KGC Vision and Values
Our goal is to build the community and become a leading source of learning around knowledge graphs.
We will achieve this by engaging and convening industry leaders and innovators, across sectors.
We will focus on the diversity of perspectives:
Professional Diversity: Industry practitioners, Business Users, Faculty, Scientists, Students
Gender & Age diversity
We will gather, share and publish content to increase learning.
We will build the community online and in-person through our content, meetups and conferences.

Entity Linking | The Symbiosis between Knowledge Graphs and News
The development and availability of Web knowledge repositories, in particular Wikipedia, as the largest general-knowledge encyclopedic collection, have changed remarkably not only the way in which individual users fulfill their informational needs but also the way in which information providers organize data by employing large knowledge graphs derived from these repositories. In this talk, we will take a closer look at the task of linking to entities from knowledge graphs both as an enabler for new user experiences on the Web, and in particular in Web news, and as a key instrument for keeping the information from knowledge graphs fresh and accurate. One part of the talk will cover news processing in near-real time for fact extraction and fact verification. Another part will cover news consumption experiences enabled by entity linking from concept-based video navigation to social-media guided news presentation. Finally, the talk will follow a journey from the idea of enabling users to check facts in their Office documents to integrating the Microsoft Knowledge Graph with Excel through the new Data Types feature.
