RE: Deep Learning and Knowledge Graphs

Semantic Web Interest Group,


Thank you for the hyperlinks. I enjoyed the publication: Neural-Symbolic Integration and the Semantic Web and observed its hyperlink to: .

Regarding future research and development directions with respect to deep learning and knowledge graphs, we can consider the topics of abstraction [1][2] and conceptual blending [3][4]. We can envision training neural networks to output abstractions from input knowledge graphs and we can envision training neural networks to output conceptual blends from pairs of or sets of input knowledge graphs.

Best regards,

Right now you'll find quite a few position papers (by EB members, under
review) at which touch
on this topic.
