About this talk

How do you get into Connected Data?

Knowledge Graphs, Graph Databases / Analytics / Data Science / AI and all that, yes.

That’s a lot to swallow, but with enough time, educational resources and practice, you’ll be fine.

But what about finding your place and a sense of belonging?

Let’s not forget - a knowledge engineer or an ontologist is a fairly new box to be in.

In technology companies UX is traditionally sitting between technology and the customer.

Knowledge Graphs are also about being between the customer or in a broader sense the human and the technology, but on the data level.

As such it is a new paradigm in software development and technology:

"Not quite the engineer, not quite the data scientist".

Let’s come together and share ideas on creating a sense of community:

  • Where do you go for support?
  • How to deal with inappropriate questions or comments?
  • How to get over or deal with impostor syndrome?
  • How to help educate your peers and support one another?

These are some of the topics your hosts want to help address in this session:

  • Get to know your fellow Connected Data colleagues
  • Round the room questions asked by hosts
  • Ask your hosts anything!

Live at the Central Lounge in Connected Data World Center
