Human-Machine Cooperation: User Corrections for AKBC

Human-Machine Cooperation: User Corrections for AKBC

This video was recorded at Joint Workshop on Automatic Knowledge Base Construction and Web-scale Knowledge Extraction (AKBC-WEKEX), Montreal 2012. Knowledge bases (KB) provide support for real-world decision making by exposing data in a structured format. However, constructing knowledge bases requires gathering data from many heterogeneous sources. Manual efforts for this task are accurate, but lack scalability, and automated approaches provide good coverage, but are not reliable enough for real world decision makers to trust. These two approaches to KB construction have complementary strengths: in this paper we propose a novel framework for supporting human proposed edits to knowledge bases.
