The Knowledge Graph Conference and Community (KGC) is seeking a hands-on, entrepreneurial volunteer to help organize its many meetup and other event series. In addition to our yearly conference, we regularly design and host smaller, Community-focused, lo-fi events. We also collaborate with other partners and conferences to co-host events, particularly with a Tech 4 Good focus.

This will be a hands-on role and involve managing event setup and marketing, event logistics and post event activities, within guidelines.
Researching and experimenting with various emerging technologies for creating great live and interactive experiences. These include event platforms and technologies such as Zoom, Slack, Twitch, Discord, Rally, RunTheWorld (RTW) and audience interaction tools such as Slido, Yac, etc. and marketing tools such as Splash. Your goal will be to explore available technologies to create the best virtual event experience(s) for both free and paid events.

Founded in 2019 at Columbia University, The Knowledge Graphs Conference (KGC) is emerging as the premier source of learning around knowledge technologies. We believe knowledge graphs are an underutilized yet essential force for solving complex societal challenges like climate change, democratizing access to knowledge and opportunity, and capturing business value made possible by the AI revolution. KGC bridges the gap between industry, which is increasingly recognizing the necessity of integrated data, and academia, wheres mantic technologies have been developing for over twenty years. Our events, education, content, and community efforts facilitate meaningful exchange between diverse groups, and increase awareness, development and adoption fo this powerful technology.
In addition to our May Conference, KGC hosts a variety of Community, education, and content initiatives. At our most recent conference, 530 attendees participated, representing over thirty industries across forty-two countries. Speakers ranged from Bell Labs pioneer John Sowa to Morgan Stanley, AstraZeneca, and leading academics from Europe and USA. Our workshops and tutorials targeted a number of Tech4Good things, including COVID-19 vaccine development and the UN SDGs.
KGC is developing educational offerings to increase the field and quality of knowledge engineers, beginning with an open- source collection of learning materials connected to a range of microcredentials. KGC also hosts a video content library and shares a monthly report detailing the case for knowledge graphs to over 800 newsletter subscribers.
