The knowledge graph is made up of interconnected patterns the nature of which can be continually expanded using a real world ontology

ResearchSpace uses an ontology as a framework for representing knowledge in structured information. Databases use artificial categories responsible for narrowing what can be said about the world and using conventions that don’t reflect the way we think. An ontology, instead, is concerned with existence, being and becoming, it represents reality.
