Special Issue on Knowledge Graph Representation and Reasoning

Journal

Neurocomputing ( IF 4.072).

Introduction

Recent years have witnessed the release of many open-source and enterprise-driven knowledge graphs with a dramatic increase of applications of knowledge representation and reasoning in fields such as natural language processing, computer vision, and bioinformatics. With those large-scale knowledge graphs, recent research tends to incorporate human knowledge and imitate human’s ability of relational reasoning. Factual knowledge stored in knowledge bases or knowledge graphs can be utilized as a source for logical reasoning and, hence, be integrated to improve real-world applications.

Emerging embedding-based methods for knowledge graph representation have shown their ability to capture relational facts and model different scenarios with heterogenous information. By combining symbolic reasoning methods or Bayesian models, deep representation learning techniques on knowledge graphs attempt to handle complex reasoning with relational path and symbolic logic and capture the uncertainty with probabilistic inference. Furthermore, efficient representation learning and reasoning can be one of the paths towards the emulation of highlevel cognition and human-level intelligence. Knowledge graphs can also be seen as a means to tackle the problem of explainability in AI. These trends naturally facilitate relevant downstream applications which inject structural knowledge into wide-applied neural architectures such as attention-based transformers and graph neural networks.

This special issue focuses on emerging techniques and trendy applications of knowledge graph representation learning and reasoning in fields such as natural language processing, computer vision, bioinformatics, and more.
