- Event: Open Knowledge Network: Enabling the Community to Build the Network
- Date: October 4, 2017 – October 5, 2017
- Location: National Institutes of Health (NIH)
- Participant List
The vision of OKN is to create an open knowledge graph of all known entities and their relationships, ranging from the macro (e.g., have there been unusual clusters of earthquakes in the US in the past six months?) to the micro (e.g., what is the best combination of chemotherapeutic drugs for a 56 y/o female with stage 3 brain cancer.) OKN is meant to be an inclusive, open, community activity resulting in a knowledge infrastructure that could facilitate and empower a host of applications and open new research avenues including how to create trustworthy knowledge networks/graphs.
A workshop took place in October 2017 at NIH. This workshop examined current OKN-related projects within Federal Agencies, how those projects can collaborate with private sector efforts, and potential next steps. The workshop focused on particular domains, and discuss how to enable an open contributing community. The presentations are available below.
