SLiDInG6 talk on biodiversity knowledge graph

  1. 1. Rod Page @rdmpage http://iphylo.blogspot.com
  2. 2. Holly Bik @hollybik Let’s rise up to unite taxonomy and technology 10.1371/journal.pbio.2002231

  4. 4. https://doi.org/10.7717/peerj.190
  5. 5. Obstacles to building knowledge graphs •Technical •Social
  6. 6. Obstacles to building knowledge graphs • Need globally unique, persistent identifiers (how to label the nodes of the graph) • Need to create and agree on vocabularies (how to label the edges of the graph) • Need to agree how to transmit the graph • Who stores the global graph?
  7. 7. A new hope… • The identifier wars are (nearly) over (DOIs FTW) • Lots of domain-specific vocabularies, but schema.org is “good enough” for most things • XML becoming a bedtime story to frighten the children, JSON is everywhere (JSON-LD FTW). • Wikidata
  8. 8. Obstacles to building knowledge graphs • Technical • Social Economic
  9. 9. How do we measure progress? before now now before Linear growth (easy) Connectivity (hard)
  10. 10. The knowledge graph is already here (it’s just not evenly distributed) William Gibson @GreatDismal
  11. 11. We will need to ensure our knowledge graph is free, open, and used for good
