Introduction Knowledge Graphs (online)

The general public is familiar with the knowledge graph of well-known commercial projects, such as the Google Knowledge Graph and the Facebook Graph. But a knowledge graph can also prove its usefulness within a specific context. You can also use Knowledge Graphs within a specific organisational domain. With these Enterprise Knowledge Graphs, you can better visualize your information needs and make information easier to find on a website or intranet, for example.

This workshop gives an introduction to Knowledge Graphs: what are they, how are they structured and how are they used? And what do slogans like RDF, triples, semantic web and ontologies have to do with this?

You can do it yourself! On the basis of your own case, you will create an ontology or Knowledge Graph. So you will be working on creating a visual network of “subject-predicate object”. Next, we will translate how to use the ontology or Knowledge Graph within a website.


At the end of the course you will have an idea of what knowledge graphs are, how they can be developed and how they can be used.

Target audience

This course is aimed at Information Professionals who like to know more on how to make and use Knowledge Graphs.


During 2 sessions of 3 hours our lecturer will guide you through the course material in an interactive and practical way to ensure that you not only get the needed knowledge and insight but develop your skills as well.


The Introduction of Knowledge Graphs course covers the following topics:

  • The idea behind and creation of knowledge graphs
  • Basic model for knowledge graphs: ontology
  • Explanation of triples (subject-predicate object)
  • Differences between and similarities with taxonomy, thesaurus, ontology
