An Introduction to the Emerging Pre-Built Knowledge Market
About the Webinar
Building a successful ModernAI application often requires large volumes of data for training ML models or data that has been organized into knowledge using taxonomies or ontologies to support specific vertical markets (healthcare, insurance, pharma, etc.) or horizontal functions (HR, legal, supply chain, etc). While tools do exist to help developers ingest and organize the required data into meaningful knowledge stores, using pre-built data or knowledge packages can make application development faster, more reliable, and less expensive than starting from scratch.
In this webinar we will look at trends and examples of specific proprietary and open source data sets that offer prebuilt knowledge, representations, or models to serve these markets.
