Post-doc position in the Parietal team

ellis 2021-12-16 France PostDoc

For many data science problems, for instance in health or business, to most important part of the study is to assemble information about the objects at hand. For instance, a good prediction of housing prices requires assembling historical values of prices, but also various information about the neighboorhood –the access to education, transportation, parks, job, shops– more global trends of geographical growth... This information is available spread across multiple source, for instance on multiple internet pages.

From a knowledge-representation standpoint, these diverse information are formally represented using relational models. Knowledge graphs form large-scale efforts to formally represent as much information as possible so that it can be manipulated and queried by computers. Yago, for instance, assembles multiple sources, –such as wikipedia, geonames...– in a consistent relational structure that covers as much as possible of general knowledge. The use of knowledge graphs in data science faces ... More
