Many existing knowledge bases (KBs), including Freebase, Yago, and NELL, rely on a fixed ontology, given as an input to the system, which defines the data to be cataloged in the KB, i.e., a hierarchy of categories and relations between them. The system then extracts facts that match the predefined ontology. We propose an unsupervised model that jointly learns a latent ontological structure of an input corpus, and identifies facts from the corpus that match the learned structure. Our approach… CONTINUE READING
