Origin

An Origin is the location or source of data that is incorporated into a fact. Origins are important for automated data extraction and knowledge graph builds as they can provide a trail as well as measure of reliability for facts within an automated system. 
Diffbot’s Knowledge Graph™ has an average of 22-25 facts per entity within the Knowledge Graph (of which there are billions). Each fact has an average of three origins or sources.
