Description of the research topic:

The increasing uptake of knowledge graph technologies raises new questions and challenges regarding the distribution of knowledge graphs. The quantity and dynamicity of information stored creates a need for knowledge distribution instead of the current centralized approaches (e.g. Wikidata). The task of the PhD student is to analyze the provider, consumer and prosumer viewpoints of knowledge graphs and to invent and experiment with new methods improving the distribution of knowledge graphs. There is a possibility to join a COST Action in this research.

- Practice with graph databases is an advantage
- Experience with RDF, SPARQL is an advantage
