"Searching and Querying Knowledge Graphs with Solr/SIREn: a Reference Architecture@Presented by Renaud Delbru and Giovanni Tummarello, Siren Solutions
Knowledge Graphs have recently gained press coverage as information giants like Google, Facebook, Yahoo, and Microsoft announced having deployed Knowledge Graphs at the core of their search and data management capabilities. In this session, Renaud will talk about a reference architecture for high performance structured querying and search on knowledge graphs. While graph databases, e.g., Triplestores or Graph Stores, have a role in this scenario, it is via Solr along with its schemaless structured search plugin SIREn that it is possible to deliver fast and accurate entity search with rich structured querying. This presentation will cover an end to end example case study of tourism social data, extraction, graph databases, SPARQL, JSON-LD, and the role of Solr/SIREn both as search and as high speed structured query component. The audience will leave this session with an understanding of the Knowledge Graph idea and how graph databases, SPARQL, JSON-LD, and Solr/SIREn can be combined to implement high performance real world applications on rich and diverse structured datasets.
