Semantic Web and Data Science are complementary disciplines working on solving problems based on large amounts of data. While Semantic Web technologies are based on Symbolic AI, Data Science relies rather on statistics and applies statistical approaches to AI.

Both disciplines approach same challenges from different perspectives while related to extracting meaningful information from several sources and large amounts of data. How to put those approaches together in a way that decision-makers could use it?

In this Meetup we will present recent developments at the intersection of machine learning and semantic knowledge modelling. We will discuss practical use case scenarios to illustrate potential results that could be achieved through the collaboration between both fields.
