There is a rising number of knowledge graphs available published through various sources. The enormous amount of linked data strives to give entities a semantic context. Using SHACL, the entities can be validated with respect to their context. On the other hand, an increasing usage of AI models in productive systems comes with a great responsibility in various areas. Predictive models like linear, logistic regression, and tree-based models, are still frequently used as they come with a simple

This work proposes to use the semantic context of the entities in knowledge graphs to validate predictive models with respect to user-defined constraints; therefore, providing a theoretical framework for a model-agnostic validation engine based on SHACL. In a second step, the model validation results are summarized in the case of a decision tree and visualized model-coherently. Finally, the performance of the framework is evaluated based on a Python implementation.
