Documentation & Program
The 67th Helmholtz Open Science Online Seminar took place on Tuesday, November 7, 2023 from 3:30 to 4:30pm (CET).
Our speakers Anna-Lena Lorenz and Oliver Karras presented the Open Research Knowledge Graph (ORKG) developed by TIB - Leibniz Information Centre for Science and Technology and other project-partners.
Science is facing a challenge: With the increasing number of publications, it is hard to keep an overview over relevant contributions. With the Open Research Knowledge Graph (ORKG), the TIB aim to solve this problem.
Semantic descriptions of research contributions make knowledge human- and machine-readable and enable completely new forms of machine assistance for scientists. With this, ORKG provides the basis for modern scholarly communication.
The talk has given a brief overview over the initiative, presented use cases and discussed possible applications for research groups and institutes.
After the presentation there was room for questions and discussion.
Anna-Lena Lorenz is the Community Manager of the Open Research Knowledge Graph. In 2021, she earned her PhD in theoretical physics and started working for TIB – Leibniz Information Centre for Science and Technology in 2022. She is involved in the Community Building and Training efforts of NFDI4DataScience.
Oliver Karras is a post-doctoral researcher, data scientist, and lecturer working at TIB - Leibniz Information Centre for Science and Technology. He received his Ph.D. in Computer Science, with a focus on requirements engineering, from Leibniz Universität Hannover in 2021. His research is concerned with the development of the Open Research Knowledge Graph (ORKG), an AI-powered platform for the structured description and organization of scientific knowledge through crowdsourced contributions from researchers. In particular, he applies his research in the context of engineering sciences, energy system research, and software engineering.
