Climate change remains the most complex and challenging issue of our time. It is being worked on from varied angles by a diverse and growing number of actors. But who is working on what, and how? What is being learned? What data is being generated?
Knowledge graphs provide a route forward. They provide a means to connect scattered, siloed information, experiences and ideas so that we can recognise and build on the latest solutions, technologies and best practices.
What are knowledge graphs, how they are being used now, and how they can be used to support climate action? This article gives a first overview and is based on our new positioning paper “Climate change action through artificial intelligence: Putting knowledge graphs to work” (2020).
