Coping with complexity: building a knowledge graph for UK Parliament
by Anya Somerville and Michael Smethurst
The presenters outlined their approach to creating ontologies, using bounded contexts to represent multiple viewpoints across a single problem space. They covered the use of domain-driven design, working in the open and Cynefin to mitigate challenges.
Michael is a data architect with the Parliamentary Digital Service and a big fan of librarians. Before joining Parliament he worked for BBC R&D. He has been tinkering with the (semantic) web for many years.
Anya is a librarian at the House of Commons Library. She thinks librarians and data architects work well together, but is not inclined to hyperbole. She’s hopeful that nuances of knowledge management might avoid being flattened by the relentless march of the machines.
The event took place online via Zoom.
