KG Exploration system architecture.

KG Exploration system architecture.


This survey expands our preliminary analysis and survey, by providing a more thorough literature review and drafting an idea for a KG exploration system (see image above).

In this paper:

  • We first identify the limitations of existing DBMSes in supporting the needs of KG data management (Section 2)
  • We provide provide a summarization of the area of KG exploration (Section 3).
  • We analyze in detail the challenges that KG exploration systems need to meet (Section 4).
  • We identify the core operations that should be supported by systems for KG exploration (Section 5)
