Rich Context: a knowledge graph for linking datasets with research outcomes

The Rich Context project at NYU Wagner is the knowledge graph complement to the ADRF platform for cross-agency social science research using sensitive data, currently used by 50+ agencies. Rich Context represents metadata about datasets and their use in research which in turn influences public policy, with a goal of producing recommender systems for analysts and policymakers. Most all of the code is open source. This talk introduces the background for the project, our team process for collaboration, and several areas where machine learning is used to infer or clean metadata obtained from scholarly infrastructure and for semi-automated graph construction, along with human-in-the-loop feedback mechanisms for domain experts to help improve our graph.

Knowledge Graphs form an organized and curated set of facts that provide support for models to help understand the world. This conference gathers technology leaders, researchers, academics, vendors — and most importantly, practitioners, who know the discipline. For KGC 2020, attendees can participate from wherever they want in the world, from the comfort of their homes. We will stream the content, provide access to our speakers and support chat and networking as well as give access to all of the content live and on-demand after the event.
