Raul Palma leads the data analytics and semantics department at the Poznan Supercomputing and Networking Center (PSNC), where he coordinates the R&D activities and the center’s participation in various EU projects around these topics. In this guest post for the metaphacts blog, Raul explains how knowledge graph technology can address data integration challenges in the agri-food sector, showcasing it through a few use cases. He describes how he leveraged metaphactory to build a domain-specific application - FOODIE - that delivers intuitive access to distributed, heterogeneous data sources and allows end users to extract meaningful insights.
FOODIE is an agriculture knowledge hub delivered as a Web application built on top of metaphactory Knowledge Graph platform. The application enables an integrated view and access over multiple datasets which have been collected from various and heterogeneous sources relevant to the agriculture sector, transformed, and published as Linked Data / in a Knowledge Graph.
