Towards the Detection of a Semantic Gap in the Chain of Commonsense Knowledge Triples

Yoshihiko Hayashi


Abstract
A commonsense knowledge resource organizes common sense that is not necessarily correct all the time, but most people are expected to know or believe. Such knowledge resources have recently been actively built and utilized in artificial intelligence, particularly natural language processing. In this paper, we discuss an important but not significantly discussed the issue of semantic gaps potentially existing in a commonsense knowledge graph and propose a machine learning-based approach to detect a semantic gap that may inhibit the proper chaining of knowledge triples. In order to establish this line of research, we created a pilot dataset from ConceptNet, in which chains consisting of two adjacent triples are sampled, and the validity of each chain is human-annotated. We also devised a few baseline methods for detecting the semantic gaps and compared them in small-scale experiments. Although the experimental results suggest that the detection of semantic gaps may not be a trivial task, we achieved several insights to further push this research direction, including the potential efficacy of sense embeddings and contextualized word representations enabled by a pre-trained language model.
