DESCRIPTION: Link prediction methods can be a valuable tool to identify new or missing facts in a knowledge graph, and in research involving the use of KGs it also can serve as a baseline method to perform tasks like item recommendation or disease diagnosis. Among the many models that can perform this task, rule-based models can be particularly useful, as they provide an inherent level of explainability and can more easily be applied to previously-unseen entities.

Plan to join us WEDS, 09 Dec for a very, VERY special TWed as the Tetherless World Constellation holds another "virtual" version of our end-of-term Graduate Research
"Lightning Talks." TWed Lightning Talks are a great way for the TWC community and friends to learn of the wide range of amazing research happening in the Tetherless World, and "a good time is had by all!"

Lightning talks are VERY short --- approx. 2-3 minute! --- summaries by our students of current research work, with no NO SLIDES and only brief "crib notes."
