KBpedia Expansion Drives Two New Use Cases

CognontoEight Cognonto Use Cases are Now Available

Since its initial release in September, we have continued to refine Cognonto’s KBpedia knowledge structure that integrates six major knowledge bases (Wikipedia, Wikidata, OpenCyc, GeoNames, DBpedia and UMBEL), plus mappings to another 20 leading ones. KBpedia provides a foundation for knowledge-based artificial intelligence (KBAI) by supporting the (nearly) automatic creation of training corpuses and positive and negative training sets and feature sets for deep, unsupervised and supervised machine learning.

Our most recent efforts have been to expand the scope and completeness of KBpedia, largely based on filling gaps in the current structure using local Wikipedia categories. This ongoing effort is making sure that the overall KBpedia structure represents the best amalgam of structure and content from KBpedia’s contributing knowledge bases. There should be an announcement of a new KBpedia release arising from these current efforts soon.

However, in the process of enhancing the Cognonto Mapper for this expansion, two new use cases have resulted from our efforts. The first use case outlines how we have used the DeepWalk graph embedding model to expand KBpedia using Wikipedia category information. The second use case, again using DeepWalk, is a fast method for accurate concept disambiguation.

With these two additions, Cognonto now has eight diverse use cases:

Each use case is summarized according to the problem and our approach to solving it and the benefits that result. The use cases themselves present general workflows and code snippets for how the use case was tackled.

We will continue to publish use cases using Cognonto’s technologies and KBpedia as they arise. Also, stay tuned for the expanded KBpedia release. Markup

KBpedia Expansion Drives Two New Use Cases

Eight Cognonto Use Cases are Now Available



Two new use cases regarding expanding KBpedia and disambiguating concepts have been added to the Cognonto Web site, bringing the total number of use cases to eight. Each use case describes a problem, how KBpedia or Cognonto technologies are used to address it, the benefits resulting from the approach, and sample code for how the use is conducted.
