Knowledge Model

The heart of the knowledge graph is a knowledge model - a collection of interlinked descriptions of concepts, entities, relationships and events where:

  • Descriptions have formal semantics that allow both people and computers to process them in an efficient and unambiguous manner
  • Descriptions contribute to one another, forming a network, where each entity represents part of the description of the entities related to it
  • Diverse data is connected and described by semantic metadata according to the knowledge model

Knowledge graphs combine characteristics of several data management paradigms:

  • Database, because the data can be queried via structured queries
  • Graph, because it can be analyzed as any other network data structure
  • Knowledge base, because the data in it bears formal semantics, which can be used to interpret the data and infer new facts

This topic map will be expanded upon over time as my research into knowledge graphs (and specifically the accompanying ecosystem) progresses. I would love to hear from you if you have any comments or suggestions regarding this knowledge graphs topic map (@brettkromkamp).
