We introduce Saga, a next-generation knowledge construction and serving platform for powering knowledge-based applications at industrial scale. Saga follows a hybrid batch-incremental design to continuously integrate billions of facts about real-world entities and construct a central knowledge graph that supports multiple production use cases with diverse requirements around data freshness, accuracy, and availability. In this paper, we discuss the unique challenges associated with knowledge graph construction at industrial scale, and review the main components of Saga and how they address these challenges. Finally, we share lessons-learned from a wide array of production use cases powered by Saga.

Increasing Coverage and Precision of Textual Information in Multilingual Knowledge Graphs

Recent work in Natural Language Processing and Computer Vision has been using textual information – e.g., entity names and descriptions – available in knowledge graphs to ground neural models to high-quality structured data. However, when it comes to non-English languages, the quantity and quality of textual information are comparatively scarce. To address this issue, we introduce the novel task of automatic Knowledge Graph Enhancement (KGE) and…

Growing and Serving Large Open-domain Knowledge Graphs

*= Equal Contributors Applications of large open-domain knowledge graphs (KGs) to real-world problems pose many unique challenges. In this paper, we present extensions to Saga our platform for continuous construction and serving of knowledge at scale. In particular, we describe a pipeline for training knowledge graph embeddings that powers key capabilities such as fact ranking, fact verification, a related entities service, and support for entity…
