OpenTox 2022 Virtual Conference 

The term Knowledge Graph describes a new type of database technology that is applied to store data about a specific domain and to query the database with questions in natural language. This technology was first used by Google to improve search results and is using semantic technologies to process the data. 

Graph technology can be used in a research project to map internal knowledge and, for example, to improve search results. For example, the COVIDGRAPH project has built up a knowledge base for COVID research.

In this session, we will discuss the steps to enable knowledge graphs for a research project to improve the data quality, ensure compliance with the FAIR principles and foster new insights into different domains.
