Georg Gottlob, Ph.D.
Areas of expertise: Crawling, reasoning and knowledge graphs.
Georg Gottlob, is a Professor of Informatics at Oxford University’s Department of Computer Science, as well as the lead researcher for both Wrapidity (acquired by Meltwater 2016) and DeepReason (acquired by Meltwater 2021). Georg has been instrumental in supporting Meltwater’s transition from largely manually created web crawlers to fully AI powered crawlers with a significant, automatic self-healing capability. He has also helped direct our knowledge graph efforts, and recently around reasoning capabilities both for improving and validating our knowledge graph. Georg’s expertise on crawlers, knowledge graphs, graph reasoning, and reasoning on large databases helps shaping our technology investments and aligns strongly with our efforts on further automating and scaling out or crawling capabilities and with out efforts on integrating and merging the Owler graph with all its unique community contributions to a foundation for all of our products. We are planning to roll out graph-based entity search as well as our next generation one-click search and insight experience.
