AI startup GraphPath launches the GraphOS Protocol and GraphOS Consortium to put Knowledge Graphs on the Blockchain
One of the major challenges facing organizations today is in figuring out how to turn wealth of information generated from big data into knowledge. Knowledge graph is a way to standardize data according to relevant business terms and models. The concept of knowledge graph was introduced by Google in a blog post. Google said: “… we’ve been working on an intelligent model — in geek-speak, a ‘graph’ — that understands real-world entities and their relationships to one another: things, not strings.”
GraphPath is a new startup helping enterprises to evolve from big data to big knowledge through the creation of large-scale enterprise knowledge graphs. Founded in 2017 by Demian Bellumio, the Miami, Florida-based GraphPath, is the creator of the Knowledge Graph-as-a-service (KGaaS) solution that allows organizations to evolve from Big Data to Big Knowledge, today
Today, the company unveiled GraphOS , the world’s first decentralized operating system for Knowledge Graphs on the blockchain. “GraphOS will facilitate the creation, collaboration and sharing of Knowledge Assets among network participants and seamlessly integrate Knowledge Graphs in a safe, secure and transparent manner,” the company said in a press release.
The GraphOS network will be powered by the GraphOS Protocol, which will provide a mechanism for defining and exchanging Knowledge Assets. Knowledge Assets can include any component and specifications of a Knowledge Graph system, such as data, code, ownership and governance details, asset description (i.e. data, code, ontology, algorithms, etc.), and licensing details, among others.
“As we thought about scaling GraphPath’s business from a few dozen to hundreds, or even thousands of customers, we identified an opportunity to complement our existing strategy with a Multisided Platform (MSP) approach,” explained Demian Bellumio, CEO of GrapPath. “We envision an MSP is which a network of Knowledge Graphs can safely and securely be interconnected via blockchain technology, and where a wide array of participants, such as Knowledge Graph owners, data providers, knowledge experts, and data scientists can efficiently transact with each other. We call this ecosystem, a Graph Operating System, or GraphOS, as it will manage all the resources necessary to run the network.”
In order to develop the GraphOS Protocol in a collaborative manner with a community of experts, GraphPath has created the GraphOS Consortium, which will be spearheaded by Mr. Bellumio and Andrew McLaughlin, a leading technologist that has worked with ICANN, Google, the US Government and Tumblr. Through the GraphOS Consortium, a group of executives from blockchain and a number of other industries will be collaborating in the development of a technological and economic framework for GraphOS.
GraphPath aims at democratizing the development and management of knowledge graphs at scale – one industry vertical at a time – so that enterprises can quickly and cost-effectively extract value from their data and build a repository of proprietary knowledge that can be leveraged by machines and people alike. The GraphPath solution allows companies to semantically organize all of their raw data into a single ontology that facilitates searching and analyzing their knowledge, as well as, deploying automated machine learning workflows, all in a collaborative and visually-engaging manner.
