In the 22nd episode of the "All Day Research" podcast, we welcome Prof. Dr. Axel-Cyrille Ngonga Ngomo. Together with our host Marvin Beckmann, they talk about knowledge graphs and artificial intelligence.
Knowledge graphs find their application in very different fields, where they serve different purposes. "Very popular are knowledge graphs in the field of 'information retrieval', meaning search engines. For example, when you use Google, you usually see a little box on the right. This is a section of the Google knowledge graph," says Prof. Dr. Ngonga Ngomo. But knowledge graphs are also being used more and more in medicine, biomedicine, finance, and ultimately in all data-driven fields.
Besides his teaching at Paderborn University, Prof. Dr. Ngonga Ngomo works mainly in research and is involved in several, different research projects. One of these projects is the "enexa", in which six different partners from the EU are working together. "At the moment, this is one of the most exciting projects we are researching. We are dealing with a huge amount of data, the results of which need to be both comprehensible to humans, but also intended for humans," explains Prof. Dr. Ngonga Ngomo.
The podcast was created in collaboration with the Department of Computer Science and the Student Council for Mathematics/Computer Science. The aim is to give more insights into science and thereby bring students - especially those in the first semester - closer to the study, to arouse interest and to show how much fun research and the study of computer science at the Paderborn University can be.
