Large-scale knowledge graphs have currently reached impressive sizes; however, they are still far from complete. In addition, most existing methods for knowledge graph completion only consider the direct links between entities, ignoring the vital impact of the semantics of relation paths. In this paper, we study the problem of how to better embed entities and relations of knowledge graphs into different low-dimensional spaces by taking full advantage of the additional semantics of relation

Specifically, with the corresponding relation and path projections, RPE can simultaneously embed each entity into two types of latent spaces. Moreover, type constraints are extended from traditional relation-specific type constraints to the proposed path-specific type constraints and both of the two type constraints can be seamlessly incorporated into RPE. The proposed model is evaluated on the benchmark tasks of link prediction and triple classification. The results of experiments demonstrate our method outperforms all baselines on both tasks. They indicate that our model is capable of catching the semantics of relation paths, which is significant for knowledge representation learning.
