Research ambitions:

Symbolic knowledge bases have always played an important role in the quest for AI. They store and manipulate knowledge in a form that is both accessible for automated reasoning by machines as well as understandable by humans. Recent breakthroughs have made it possible to build a worldwide distributed  knowledge base of unprecedented scale. This raises an entirely new set of research challenges: how to reason over knowledge bases with billions of statements, how to deal with inconsistency, or with knowledge bases that change faster than we can track.
