SEIEE Professor Xinbing Wang Presents on Geoscience Knowledge Graph at UNESCO Headquarters

On Novermber 9, 2022, Professor Xinbing Wang from the Department of Electronic Engineering at Shanghai Jiao Tong University presented their latest accomplishments in the interdisciplinary area of Geoscience Knowledge Graph at the Deep-time Digital Earth (DDE) Open Science Forum held at UNESCO Headquarters in Paris, France. Over 150 top scientists from around the world participated in this Forum co-organized by UNESCO, IUGS, IYBSSD, and DDE.

The DDE International Big Science Initiative was proposed by our Chinese scientists and then initiated by 13 international organizations in 2019. Prof. Xinbing Wang was among the first participants of DDE, along with Academicians Chengshan Wang, Chenghu Zhou, Qiuming Cheng, Jian Wang, and other experts. The DDE Initiative is committed to building a platform for facilitating international collaboration between geoscientists and data scientists, and for promoting innovation of geoscience in the big data era.

In this DDE Open Science Forum, the DDE Platform ( was launched globally in the presence of the DDE Governing Council and Scientific Committee. Prof. Xinbing Wang has contributed several key components of the Platform, including the following:

DDE Scholar (, a search engine for academic literature in geosciences, contains over 3 million papers and 4 million scholars' information from more than 500 core journals in geosciences. It conducts academic big data mining to obtain academic trends, representative scholars, and paper analysis.

The above accomplishments showcased Prof. Xinbing Wang’s strong expertise in academic big data and knowledge graph, and its deep integration with geoscience. During the DDE Open Science Forum, many international experts showed great interests in these systems. The live demos and presentations also exhibit the outstanding demeanor of the PhD students supervised by Prof. Xinbing Wang.
