2022 Keynote: NASA Knowledge Graphs: An Ever Expanding Universe

Knowledge graphs help uncover value from your data by creating relationships across different domains. These relationships can help unlock hidden information to spearhead our gateway to Mars. While the end result may be out of this world, the capabilities are earth bound and useful to all. In this keynote, Meza will share how the kinds of knowledge graphs they have built and are contemplating at NASA are useful for everyone.
