This project aims to build and test the prototype of a novel database management system for Knowledge Graphs. The novelty stems from using Machine Learning models trained to approximate expensive graph operators. Furthermore, we aim to give control to the end user over the uncertainty introduced in the query by the ML approximation via error bounding methods at the level of each query. We deploy and serve the ML models using ONNX, which was identified by our previous NAISS project as the most suitable tool for this case. In this project, we materialize the development of the vision presented in our published research papers: S. Horchidan, supervised by Paris Carbone. 2023.
