The YAGO-NAGA approach to knowledge discovery

Gjergji Kasneci, Maya Ramanath, Fabian Suchanek, Gerhard Weikum
2009 SIGMOD record  
This paper gives an overview on the YAGO-NAGA approach to information extraction for building a conveniently searchable, large-scale, highly accurate knowledge base of common facts.  ...  The paper presents the architecture of the YAGO extractor toolkit, its distinctive approach to consistency checking, its provisions for maintenance and further growth, and the query engine for YAGO, coined  ...  But we could incorporate other sources such as DBLP or UMLS, and adapt the YAGO extractors to them.  ...

Machine Knowledge: Creation and Curation of Comprehensive Knowledge Bases [article]

Gerhard Weikum, Luna Dong, Simon Razniewski, Fabian Suchanek
2021 arXiv   pre-print
Equipping machines with comprehensive knowledge of the world's entities and their relationships has been a long-standing goal of AI.  ...  Over the last decade, large-scale knowledge bases, also known as knowledge graphs, have been automatically constructed from web contents and text sources, and have become a key asset for search engines  ...  It is a great pleasure and honor to have such wonderful colleagues in our research community.  ...

Foundations for Meaning and Understanding in Human-centric AI [article]

Steels, Luc (ed.)
2022 Zenodo  
We call this kind of AI meaningful AI in contrast to AI that rests exclusively on the use of statistically acquired pattern recognition and pattern completion.  ...  Our explorations have yielded a wealth of insights: about understanding in general and the role of narratives in this process, about possible applications of meaningful AI in a diverse set of human-centred  ...  and rhetorics in economics and economic a↵airs; reminding me not to lose sight of a fundamental aspect of this ambitious project, its focus on the human beings, and on their use of language for (re)constructing  ...

Off Pitch: Football's Financial Integrity Weaknesses, and How to Strengthen Them

Matthew Andrews, Peter Harrington
2016 Social Science Research Network  
Men's professional football is the biggest sport in the world, producing (by our estimate) US $33 billion a year.  ...  All is not well in the sector, however, with regular scandals raising questions about the role of money in the sport.  ...  We believe that these three roles need to be separated more aggressively than they have been to date, as simplified in Figure 42 .  ...

Joint Discourse-aware Concept Disambiguation and Clustering

Angela Petra Fahrni
2016
We approach the question which context is relevant to disambiguate a mention from a discourse perspective and state that different mentions require different notions of contexts.  ...  Concept disambiguation is the task of linking common nouns and proper names in a text -henceforth called mentions -to their corresponding concepts in a predefined inventory.  ...  For example PHOTOGRAPH can be used in one single discourse to refer to the photograph of a famous actor, to some photographs of a tiger and to a photograph of an actor with a tiger.  ...

Towards multi-modal face recognition in the wild

Chao Xiong, Tae-Kyun Kim, Imperial College London
2016
It is desirable to design a framework adaptive to the modality-driven variations in the specific scenarios.  ...  Over the past a few decades, face recognition has drawn significant attention due to its potential use in biometric authentication, surveillance, security, robotics and so on.  ...  In the forward process of a convolution layer, one 3-D convolution kernel is applied on all the feature maps -channels of the 3-D outputs of previous layer, and is used to compute one output feature map  ...
