Theme 1 Projects

Theme 1:
Proto-OKN Use Cases

Fifteen projects in this category will develop knowledge graphs or “nodes” of the Proto-OKN that address specific use-case challenges using well-identified data sets and a user-centric design process to help ensure usability and sustainability of the effort. Theme 1 Use Case projects will work in close collaboration with Theme 2 OKN Fabric projects to deploy their use cases on a common implementation fabric.
