These personal Data Fusion instances can be created with a pre-loaded subset of TR's Knowledge Graph (permid.org), giving the opportunity to discover the power of our software product and API, as well as the value of our content. Whether it's for hack-a-thons or proof-of-concepts, the powerful functionality of Data Fusion CE can give developers a head start with innovation.
