Connected Data workshops: get hands-on knowledge, learn from the best

Acquiring skills you can use in your daily work is no easy feat, and Connected Data skills are no exception. We know earning our badges has been hard, so we are trying to make things easier for you.

When we announced Connected Data London 2019, we wanted our first ever workshops to be a center piece of our offering. Today we are happy to unveil our program and instructors. We picked some of the most sought after topics, and some of the most knowledgeable people to show how it’s done.

Do you have experience in data modeling, or in classification, and want to get the boost needed to upgrade to building knowledge graphs? Then going from taxonomies and schemas to knowledge graphs is what you need.

Panos Alexopoulos, Head of Ontology in Textkernel, a CarrerBuilder company, has been building knowledge graphs for many years. In his session in Connected Data London 2018, Panos shared what to think about when crafting a knowledge graph strategy.

On October 3, between 9:30 am and 12:30 pm, Panos gets hands on, and he’ll help us recognize and tackle the pitfalls of large-scale semantic modeling. His session will go from an intro to knowledge graphs and Semantics, to doing interactive semantics CSI: exploring the issues in public knowledge graphs, so you can learn how to avoid pitfalls when building your own.

Do you want to learn how to use the low-hanging fruit of knowledge graphs — schema.org and JSON-LD — to annotate content and improve your SEO with semantics and entities? Then going from knowledge graphs to AI-powered SEO will give you superpowers.

Andrea Volpini, CEO of Wordlift, has 20 years of world-class experience in online strategies and web publishing. Andrea has been helping people with semantic content enrichment, artificial intelligence, and search.

On October 3, between 1:30 pm and 4:30 pm, Andrea will share the fundamentals of his trade, and he’ll help us use taxonomies, schemas and knowledge graphs to improve search engine rankings and web publishing workflows. His session will go from the elements of modern SEO and structured linked data to using entities and graphs with JSON-LD.

We built our workshops based on a set of simple principles, to make sure you get the most out of them:

  • Sessions will strike a balance between providing necessary background and being hands-on.
  • The tools we will use for the hands-on part are free and/or open source.
  • Minimum requirements in terms of equipment or knowledge/skills attendants should have are clearly stated.
  • The material used is part of the package and will be made available to attendants.

Our workshops would not be possible without our awesome instructors and workshop sponsors. Big thanks to Wordlift, watch this space for more sessions and more sponsors!
