Graph explosion and consolidation. The Year of the Graph Newsletter, June 2019
With the knowledge graph space exploding on all accounts (interest, use cases, funding), centrifugal and centripetal forces are simultaneously at play. While the “wild, early days” of knowledge graph technology are gone, the 20 year anniversary of the Semantic Web is a good opportunity to reflect on what worked and what didn’t, and to move forward in a pragmatic way.
