Talks and Events

2022 Talk: Web3 asset graphs with OriginTrail Decentralized Knowledge Graph

Introduction to creating and managing Web3 Asset Graphs with the OriginTrail Decentralized Knowledge Graph and blockchains

2021 Talk: Knowledge Economy Tools Based On The OriginTrail Decentralized Knowledge Graph

Knowledge graphs are powerful tools used by organizations to integrate their siloed data into useful, machine-readable information for a wide range of purposes. The OriginTrail Decentralized Knowledge Graph (DKG) extends this approach to enable trusted knowledge exchange between multiple organizations, marrying knowledge graph technology with DLT and blockchain frameworks to enable 4 Is – interoperability, interconnectivity, integrity and incentivization. Based on W3C and GS1 standards, the open-source OriginTrail DKG is hosted on the OriginTrail Decentralized Network, operated by hundreds of organizations and individuals around the globe and built to utilize a multitude of blockchains such as Ethereum and Polkadot.

In 2021, the DKG is being extended with tools such as trusted knowledge tokens, knowledge wallets, knowledge marketplaces and knowledge tenders to enable incentivized, trusted knowledge exchange, which will together with the OriginTrail DKG be presented during the talk at Knowledge Graph Conference 2021.
