Why put a knowledge graph on-device?
With RDFox, businesses can harness the power of a remote or portable knowledge graph while safeguarding data privacy and reducing expenses. This technology empowers our clients to unlock valuable insights, optimize search functionality, personalize user experiences, and perform sophisticated data analysis, all at the speed required to meet user expectations.
An on-device knowledge graph is a powerful tool that combines relevant information with existing data to deliver maximum value to users. Unlike traditional databases, knowledge graphs have a dynamic structure that adapts to new data, making them ideal for real-world applications in rapidly changing environments. By incorporating semantic reasoning, these graphs enable businesses to extract valuable insights from their data, resulting in improved search capabilities, enhanced personalization, and robust analysis.
RDFox, our cutting-edge solution, stands out as an in-memory graph database. This means that all data is stored directly on the user's device, eliminating privacy and security concerns. Our clients and their users can rest assured knowing that their personal data remains secure and protected. In addition, storing all information on the device eliminates the need for costly data storage and communication expenses, ensuring cost-effective solutions for businesses.
Examples of a knowledge graph on a smartphone
A powerful use case of RDFox is to supercharge personalised recommendations on a smartphone. All stored on-device to alleviate privacy concerns, a personal knowledge graph is created on a user’s device with information about them and their habits. For example, this may be demographic information, songs they listen to, or products they’ve bought. This data is then used within the context of their on-device activity—browsing a store or streaming service—to provide personalised recommendations and ultimately a bespoke user experience.
