Keynotes Announcement: Katariina Kari

We are pleased to announce that Katariina Kari is going to be one of our keynotes!
Here some words about what she’s going to talk about at ESWC 2024:

Since 2017 I have applied semantic web technologies with the lifestyle
e-commerce sector, first at Zalando and since 2021 at Inter IKEA Systems B.V. Both companies face the same problems of siloed data and no way of translating between the meaning around their product data.

What I have learned over those years is a set sequence of events that build up the Knowledge Graph capabilities of a company and take them towards semantically driven applications. Contrary to textbook examples, the work never starts with a top ontology nor with OWL reasoning. However, those do come into play around the ark from where a knowledge graph project started.
