Using Knowledge Graphs to Search an Enterprise Data Lake

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 11762)


This paper summarizes our research & development activities in building a semantic data management platform for large enterprise data lakes, with a focus on the automotive domain. We demonstrate the use of ontology models to systematically represent, link, and search large amounts of automotive data. Such search capability is an important enabler for Hadoop-based big data analytics and machine learning. These findings are being transferred to a productive system in order to foster the advanced engineering and AI at Bosch Chassis Systems Control (CC), especially in the automated driving area.
