Connecting data, people, and ideas. Stay safe, stay connected, join us.

Connected Data London is more than an event – it’s a community. Stay safe, stay connected, join us!

This is not exactly your average community update. It’s not that we do not have great news and plans to share with you. It’s just that in the current situation, attending events is probably not top of mind for anyone. Community, on the other hand, is. We get that. Don’t despair. This is serious, but we will get through this.

We love live interaction. While at this time this is not possible, we like seeing challenges as opportunities. We have an ongoing presence across Tweeter, LinkedIn, Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, and our Newsletter, bringing you industry news and exciting updates.

We’ve been working hard to stay connected, and bring you great things. We are launching online Meetups and Podcasts, and we have exciting topics lined up for you. 

Always Connected: Online Meetups

Our Meetups in London and Berlin have always been about connecting data, people, and ideas, in a respectful environment that fosters learning and sharing.

We are bringing the Meetup experience online, starting on April the 22nd. As always, our Meetups are free and open for everyone to join. What’s new is, you can now join remotely.

We have 2 talks with exciting speakers and topics lined up for you.

 

Facilitating COVID-19 research using Graph Analytics and Knowledge Graphs.

Scientists, health researchers and policymakers are using all the tools they can get their hands on to try and beat the current global pandemic. Still, the global scientific knowledge base is little more than a collection of documents, written by humans for humans. 

Germany’s National Centre for Diabetes Research (DZD) is integrating data from various sources and linking them in a dedicated COVID-19 Knowledge Graph. The Open Research Knowledge Graph (ORKG) project is working on technologies for open graphs about research knowledge. 

How can these efforts inform each other? Join us for a discussion between DZD’s Head of Data Management and Knowledge Management, Dr. Alexander Jarasch, and Dr. Sören Auer, TIB Director and ORKG Lead, moderated by George Anadiotis, ZDNet contributor.  

Connecting the Dots with reKnowledge

Many AI startups claim they can solve all analytical questions using a magic algorithmic wand. But human analysts are essential actors, and instead of seeking to replace them, another approach would be to enhance their capabilities. Machine learning and artificial intelligence are one part of the bigger picture. 

Julien Grossmann is the Co-founder & CEO of reKnowledge. He will share how knowledge graphs, natural language processing and a slick user interface can help mapping and gathering critical political and violent risks indicators and events related to the pandemic crisis. To close on a lighter note, Julien will share a case study on mapping the Game of Thrones Network. 

Always Connected: Podcasts

If you are more of an auditory type of person: we got you covered, too. We have created our Connected Data Podcast, and we are looking forward to connecting with all of you on this exciting medium. We are starting out by streaming our diverse and multi-faceted talks from previous events.

Connect and learn from leaders and innovators from the likes of Bayer, BBC, Facebook, Google, IBM, NASA, Microsoft, JP Morgan Chase, Uber, and Zalando.

Besides our back catalog, we will soon start publishing new material, too. We have many plans for new topics, interviews, panels and webinars. Our podcast has its own home, but you can enjoy it on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Podcasts, plus a number of other platforms, or subscribe via RSS.
