Knowledge Graphs provide a neat and easy way to segment your data, called ‘Named Graphs‘. This post shows how you access them, and different uses they may be put to.Continue reading
With this installment we finally get to the part of knowledge graphs that I personally find really exciting: Semantics. In this installment, I will introduce some of the simple rules of entailment that are a part of the RDFS standard.Continue reading
This installment moves beyond the simple graph model of RDF to introduce the modelling support of RDF Schema. I will go on to show you how using the W3C Standard RDFS imbues your data with another layer of meaning, and makes it easier for you to enrich your raw data with meaning over time.Continue reading
Last time I showed you how to use CLI tools to build out your RDF data to more depth using Turtle files and how to query it using the Apache Jena CLI toolchain using SPARQL Query language. This time I’ll show how to insert and retrieve data from a remote triple store. I’ll continue using the CLI tools for now.Continue reading
Last time I showed how to write RDF in Turtle, and how to make very simple queries in SPARQL. What I didn’t show was how to get your hands dirty. Specifically, I want to show you how to try things out on the
cheap command line. I will show examples of how to build out your RDF data to more depth using Turtle files, and how to use the Jena framework to create queries against that data, so you can work out ahead of time how to navigate your graph of data.
This is the first in a short series introducing Knowledge Graphs. It covers just the basics, showing how to write, store, query and work with graph data using RDF (short for Resource Description Format). I will keep it free of theory and interesting but unnecessary digressions. Let me know in the comments if you find it useful, and also tell me what other Knowledge Graph topics you would like to know more about.
This post shows some of the basics of RDF and knowledge graphs. It introduces the simple idea of the triple, how you make statements with them, and piece them together into graphs. I show how you can neatly write RDF using the Turtle language as well as how to use the elegant query language SPARQL to explore your knowledge graph.Continue reading
