Do Dogs have Whiskers? A New Knowledge Base of hasPart Relations

  title={Do Dogs have Whiskers? A New Knowledge Base of hasPart Relations},
  author={Sumithra Bhakthavatsalam and Kyle Richardson and Niket Tandon and P. Clark},
We present a new knowledge-base of hasPart relationships, extracted from a large corpus of generic statements. Complementary to other resources available, it is the first which is all three of: accurate (90% precision), salient (covers relationships a person may mention), and has high coverage of common terms (approximated as within a 10 year old's vocabulary), as well as having several times more hasPart entries than in the popular ontologies ConceptNet and WordNet. In addition, it contains… Expand
Dimensions of Commonsense Knowledge
This paper surveys a wide range of popular commonsense sources with a special focus on their relations, and consolidates these relations into 13 knowledge dimensions, each abstracting over more specific relations found in sources. Expand
KRISP: Integrating Implicit and Symbolic Knowledge for Open-Domain Knowledge-Based VQA
This work study open-domain knowledge, the setting when the knowledge required to answer a question is not given/annotated, neither at training nor test time, and demonstrates that while the model successfully exploits implicit knowledge reasoning, the symbolic answer module which explicitly connects the knowledge graph to the answer vocabulary is critical to the performance of the method.

KRISP: Supplemental Material
DBPedia First we extracted DBPedia [1]. DBPedia is actually a set of datasets collected from Wikipedia articles and tables. For our knowledge graph we used the October 2016 crawl of Wikipedia.1 ForExpand

Image Captioning for Effective Use of Language Models in Knowledge-Based Visual Question Answering
Integrating outside knowledge for reasoning in visio-linguistic tasks such as visual question answering (VQA) is an open problem. Given that pretrained language models have been shown to includeExpand
Advanced Semantics for Commonsense Knowledge Extraction
This paper presents a methodology, called Ascent, to automatically build a large-scale knowledge base (KB) of CSK assertions, with advanced expressiveness and both better precision and recall than prior works. Expand
Information to Wisdom: Commonsense Knowledge Extraction and Compilation
This tutorial presents state-of-the-art methodologies towards the compilation and consolidation of commonsense knowledge (CSK), covering text-extraction-based, multi-modal and Transformer-based techniques, with special focus on the issues of web search and ranking, as of relevance to the WSDM community.

Extracting meronyms for a biology knowledge base using distant supervision
A novel algorithm is introduced, generalizing the ``at least one'' assumption of multi-instance learning to handle the case where a fixed (but unknown) percentage of bag members are positive examples, for the domain of college biology. Expand
WebChild 2.0 : Fine-Grained Commonsense Knowledge Distillation
This paper presents a system based on a series of algorithms to distill fine-grained disambiguated commonsense knowledge from massive amounts of text. Expand
Automatic Acquisition of Hyponyms from Large Text Corpora
A set of lexico-syntactic patterns that are easily recognizable, that occur frequently and across text genre boundaries, and that indisputably indicate the lexical relation of interest are identified. Expand
GenericsKB: A Knowledge Base of Generic Statements
We present a new resource for the NLP community, namely a large (3.5M+ sentence) knowledge base of *generic statements*, e.g., "Trees remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere", collected fromExpand
Commonsense Properties from Query Logs and Question Answering Forums
Quasimodo, a methodology and tool suite for distilling commonsense properties from non-standard web sources that focuses on salient properties that are typically associated with certain objects or concepts, is presented. Expand
Commonsense in Parts: Mining Part-Whole Relations from the Web and Image Tags
A new method for automatically acquiring part-whole commonsense from Web contents and image tags at an unprecedented scale, yielding many millions of assertions, while specifically addressing the four shortcomings of prior work. Expand
ConceptNet 5.5: An Open Multilingual Graph of General Knowledge
A new version of the linked open data resource ConceptNet is presented that is particularly well suited to be used with modern NLP techniques such as word embeddings, with state-of-the-art results on intrinsic evaluations of word relatedness that translate into improvements on applications of word vectors, including solving SAT-style analogies.

Domain-Targeted, High Precision Knowledge Extraction
This work has created a domain-targeted, high precision knowledge extraction pipeline, leveraging Open IE, crowdsourcing, and a novel canonical schema learning algorithm (called CASI), that produces high precisionknowledge targeted to a particular domain - in this case, elementary science. Expand
Espresso: Leveraging Generic Patterns for Automatically Harvesting Semantic Relations
Experimental results show that the exploitation of generic patterns substantially increases system recall with small effect on overall precision, and a principled measure of pattern and instance reliability enabling the filtering algorithm. Expand
Automatic Discovery of Part-Whole Relations
This paper presents a supervised, semantically intensive, domain independent approach for the automatic detection of part-whole relations in text and demonstrates the importance of word sense disambiguation for this task. Expand
