Ontology for Knowledge and Data Strategies
December 13, 2022 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm GMTFree
“Ontology suffers from an adoption problem. If we are to describe the benefits of ontologies and knowledge graphs, we need to demonstrate how these can contribute to the business. That means addressing the knowledge and data management strategies of the organisation.”
“A knowledge management strategy addresses a range of concerns, including terminology, business semantics, data provenance and quality, information availability and a rigorous treatment of context. Ontology is just one tool among many in the overall strategy for managing knowledge assets and their use.”
“In this seminar we will unpack the components of an organisational knowledge strategy and show in terms that both business and IT can understand, how different types of ontology fit in to the firm’s wider data management and knowledge strategies, alongside a range of other tools and techniques.”
“Attendees do not need any prior knowledge of ontology, knowledge graphs or semantic technology, but should ideally have an appreciation of data and knowledge management issues.”
“The seminar will take place both in-person at Westminster Business School and online. For those attending online a link will be sent prior to the seminar.”
