A previous blog post discussed the design of the DNA Ontology and its focus on events and situations (e.g., verbs). The ontology is designed to be general and flexible. So, the OntoInsights team sought to evaluate its usability in a totally different domain … to capture and fuse Environment, Social and Governance (ESG) data.
To this end, we created and hosted a sample knowledge graph as part of the Hanken Quantum Hackathon 2021. The graph fused information about 1900+ companies — including their industries, profits, environmental impacts, and country of headquarters — and combined that with data about their “headquarters” country.
This post explores our experiences in creating that knowledge graph.
