Distributed Knowledge Graphs for the Web of Things

Tutorial at the 10th International Conference on the Internet of Things (IoT 2020).


To address the interoperability problem on the Internet of Things and to realise the vision of an interlinked Web of Things, Knowledge Graph technologies from the Semantic Web and Linked Data stack can make a difference. In this tutorial, we cover foundational Knowledge Graph technologies that allow to perform data integration on the Internet of Things, and focus on Knowledge Graph technologies that allow to address the aspects of dynamics, distribution, and control on the Internet of Things.
