Event Details:

The second in a series of AI Discovery Sessions for Information, Intelligent Machines, and New Knowledge with Ruggero Gramatica.

How can we transition from the Information Economy to the Knowledge Economy? Traditional approaches based on IT smart technology that leverage indexing, RDF, open link can only marginally tackle the issue. Leveraging the rising of AI and ML together with a new cognitive linguistic approach, I will present the results of applied research which has led to the launch of the first interdisciplinary knowledge graph. Based on the paradigm of conceptual spaces, it builds inferences across concepts and their relationships, always providing precise references to the original literature source and an explanation of the connection. Most importantly, not providing a direct solution to queries but rather leads to infer the reasoning around the answers.


Ruggero Gramatica is CEO of Yewno and has over 20 years of experience in startups and company turnaround. Bringing strategic leadership as well as technological and operational expertise to bear, he has contributed to the growth and expansion of 5 successful start-ups both in the United States and across Europe. Ruggero has operated successfully in both blue chip and early stage environments. He brings to his roles a strong technology background, financial and quantitative analysis skills alongside strategic thinking, operational expertise, commercial and business acumen. 

In addition to a PhD in Applied Mathematics, Ruggero holds an MBA from the University of Chicago Booth School of Business, an Engineering degree from the Politecnico di Milano University and a Certificate in Quantitative Finance.
