Identifying and integrating missing facts is a crucial task for knowledge graph completion to ensure robustness towards downstream applications such as question answering. Adding new facts to a knowledge graph in real world system often involves human verification effort, where candidate facts are verified for accuracy by human annotators. This process is labor-intensive, time-consuming, and inefficient since only a small number of missing facts can be identified. This paper proposes a simple but effective human-in-the-loop framework for fact collection that searches for a diverse set of highly relevant candidate facts for human annotation. Empirical results presented in this work demon- strate that the proposed solution leads to both improvements in i) the quality of the candidate facts as well as ii) the ability of discovering more facts to grow the knowledge graph without requiring additional human effort.

Think While You Write Hypothesis Verification Promotes Faithful Knowledge-to-Text Generation

Neural knowledge-to-text generation models often struggle to faithfully generate descriptions for the input facts: they may produce hallucinations that contradict the given facts, or describe facts not present in the input. To reduce hallucinations, we propose a novel decoding method, TWEAK (Think While Effectively Articulating Knowledge). TWEAK treats the generated sequences at each decoding step and its future sequences as hypotheses, and ranks…

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…
