Knowledge Graphs, Ontologies, and AI

This past fall, all aspects of the computable knowledge structure KBpedia – its upper ontology (KKO), full knowledge graph, mappings to major leading knowledge bases, and 70 logical concept groupings called typologies – became open source. Making big strides in increasing definitions and mappings has been a main focus of KBpedia v. 1.60. As it always […]

In-Memory Database Architecture: An Overview

In-memory databases work faster than databases with disk storage. This is because they use “internal” optimization algorithms, which are simpler and faster, and this type of system requires fewer CPU instructions than a disk storage system. Additionally, accessing data that has been stored “in-memory” eliminates the need for seek time while searching for data. As […]
