⚛️ Introducing GRAKN.AI to Manchester

The success or failure of any modern organisation relies on the way they leverage their data. However, most institutions and organisations have no way to aggregate the magnitude and complexity of their disparate data catalogs. They require a unified representation of their data which represents their specific domain truthfully as well as conceptually.

In other words, they need an expressive data model and an intelligent query language to perform knowledge engineering over complex datasets. In this Meetup event, we will introduce GRAKN.AI, a distributed hyper-relational database to Manchester's engineering community.

In this talk, we will discuss how Grakn, a database to organise complex networks of data and make it queryable, provides the knowledge base foundation for intelligent systems to manage complex data. We will discuss how Graql, Grakn's reasoning (through OLTP) and analytics (through OLAP) query language, provides the tools required to do the job: a knowledge schema, a logical inference language, a distributed analytics framework. And finally, we will discuss how Graql’s language serves as unified data representation of data for cognitive systems.

💼 About GRAKN.AI

Grakn provides the knowledge base foundation for intelligent systems to manage complex data. We will also introduce Graql: Grakn's reasoning (through OLTP) and analytics (through OLAP) query language. Graql provides the tools required to do knowledge engineering: an expressive schema for knowledge modelling, reasoning transactions for real-time inference, distributed algorithms for large-scale analytics, and optimisation of query execution. In addition, we will discuss how Graql’s language serves as unified data representation of data for cognitive systems.

🎤 Tomas Sabat, Chief Operating Officer @ Grakn Labs

Tomas is the COO of GRAKN.AI, the knowledge graph for intelligent systems. He works on introducing the world on how to use a Grakn knowledge graph to build cognitive and AI systems, working in industries such a biotech, finance and cyber-security.
