“The spark that birthed Stardog came about easy-rider style. One cold winter night in 2003, data scientist Kendall Clark was “freezing on a motorcycle ride” when he came up with an idea to future-proof data management.

At the time Clark was working at an artificial intelligence research lab in Arlington, VA, exploring whether the World Wide Web could be the basis for a new kind of data integration system.
