About the Lecture:
Knowledge Graph is the cornerstone of Artificial Intelligence, which includes knowledge acquisition, knowledge organization, knowledge storage, knowledge query and retrieval, knowledge reasoning and application, etc, which is the new development of Symbolic Artificial Intelligence, which is a key tool to solve the interpretability problem of AI. This talk will first give the historical background of Artificial Intelligence, then track back the development of knowledge graphs, which includes the approaches of knowledge representations and development of knowledge engineering, then mainly introduce the current mainstream theories, methods, standards, and applications of knowledge graphs, which is represented by the Semantic Web and Linked Data, and finally look forward to how knowledge graphs promote the development of the next generation of AI.
