Reasoning has become an increasingly valued tool in the world of connected data, and yet to many it’s still a black box solution. Perhaps more tragically, despite the explosion of its development in recent years, many still perceive it as a slow, cumbersome, and ultimately impractical technology, which could not be further from true today. Whether you’re looking to harness reasoning for your own goals, or to peek behind the curtains of someone else’s solution, now is your time to learn. Get hands on witha reasoning engine in this interactive walkthrough: A Beginner’s Guide to Reasoning. You’ll come away understanding the power of reasoning, what it can add to your data, and the fundamentals of how to apply it yourself. With technology in this space running away, there’s never been a better time to learn!
This tutorial will touch on the basics of SPARQL, OWL, and Datalog, before diving into reasoning at a technical level. Each participant will come away having built a reasoning solution for themselves, guided along the way by knowledge engineers and subject experts. No prior knowledge is required.
The team behind Oxford Semantic Technologies started working on RDFox in 2011 at the Computer Science Department of the University of Oxford with the conviction that flexible and high-performance reasoning was a possibility for data-intensive applications without jeopardising the correctness of the results. RDFox is the first market-ready knowledge graph designed from the ground up with reasoning in mind. Oxford Semantic Technologies is a spin-out of the University of Oxford and is backed by leading investors including Samsung Venture Investment Corporation (SVIC), Oxford Sciences Enterprises (OSE) and Oxford University Innovation (OUI).
