Stanford University | Knowledge Graphs

Stanford University’s computer science department is offering free classes on Knowledge Graphs. These are available to the public (via Zoom meeting). You can sign up by emailing this address (you will subsequently receive a link to join the online class).

Stanford is also making recordings of the class available via the class website. Recordings were initially going to be available only to Stanford students, but it seems that widespread demand changed this policy.

Bob Kasenchak and Ahren Lehnert are taking part and sharing their thoughts through a series of short blogs.

Semiotics of Knowledge Graphs: Fixing Meaning in an Unfixed World


Bob Kasenchak took part in IAC20 as part of their online programme. Bob discussed why Knowledge Graphs are hot in the information world right now; with articles from this fairly esoteric space in the information industry show up in Forbes and the Wall Street Journal, something is clearly afoot. Why is this? How do Knowledge Graphs purport to help us (and, apparently, large corporations) make sense of things.
