This is an interactive training webinar on how and why a journey to becoming Data-Centric is the way to future proof information management for the enterprise.  The training will give students and faculty a concentrated view into Semantic capabilities, practical learnings of Knowledge Graph application and “hands on” use of Ontology “best practices”.  Our full day virtual training program will consist of 6 50-minute sessions with a 10-minute breaks every hour. There will be an hour allotted for lunch – your responsibility.

To increase engagement throughout the training, we ask that you have your video camera on, that you participate in exercises and help to direct the conversation with questions to better understand how you’re absorbing the material.  As a preferred prerequisite, we’ll be supplying a quick read introduction to this topic that will give a jump start for facilitating a smoother learning transition.  This background reading is not essential but will serve as a contextually relevant pre-learning exercise.
