Graphes de connaissance et traitements de données massives : où en est-on ?

Paris, France
Amphithéatre Gilles Glicenstein
BNP Paribas
14 rue Bergère


Sur le web et dans les organisations, les graphes de connaissances essaiment et deviennent les infrastructures de données sous-jacentes à un nombre croissant de services d’information. A l’instar du « Social Graph » de Facebook ou du « Knowledge Graph » de Google, les modèles de graphes deviennent des actifs stratégiques pour donner du sens à des données complexes, les connecter et les exposer de façon agile dans des services innovants : moteurs de recherche, de recommandation, de scoring de risques ou de comportements, outils d’exploration ou de visualisation de données, etc… Pourtant, les modèles de graphes sont, en tant qu’objets techniques et intellectuels, souvent mal compris et leurs usages réduits à la dataviz, qui n’en est qu’un des outputs possibles. Que sont les graphes de données, quels liens avec la "théorie des graphes" et quels sont les grandes approches permettant de les instancier dans un projet de système d’information ? Comment les déployer, sur quelles données et pour quels usages ? Où en sont les technologies disponibles sur le marché ? Quelle ingénierie de projet et quelles compétences mobiliser pour les concevoir et les enrichir ?
