Knowledge-Graph-enhanced Product Catalogue

In this presentation we will show how we are using curated information stored in the IKEA Knowledge Graph to generate valuable product data. The manual effort is done on a general level and is small in size compared to the generated product data. This approach proves that “a little semantics goes a long way” and helps IKEA to serve its customers better information on its various products.
