Open Academic Society is formed by a group of institutions to create a shared, open and expanding knowledge graph of research and education-focused entities and relationships. With the initial contributions from the Microsoft Academic by Microsoft Research and the AMiner graph from Tsinghua University, the reach and depth of the knowledge graph will come through the Society members’ contributions. The data set is available under a freely accessible cloud API, and the society will organize workshops, challenges, and data sharing activities for the benefit of the larger computer science community.
