Title: Detecting and correcting typing errors in open Knowledge Graphs
Abstract: Open Knowledge Graphs (KGs) derived from semi-structured corpora on the Web enable the Linked Oped Data cloud and provide structured knowledge for applications like Web search and question-answering. Building KGs is a laborious and error prone task, and even state-of-the-art methods lead to systemic errors and inconsistencies that negatively affect the quality of the data. This work investigates an automatic method for detecting and correcting erroneous type assignments in an open-domain KG, with the help of an annotated corpus mentioning entities from that KG. This is done by embedding entities in the KG in semantic space using both KG properties as well as the way in which the entities are mentioned in the text. This solution was tested with DBpedia as the KG and Wikipedia as the text corpus, through an extensive retrospective evaluation in which almost 15,000 entity-type assignments were verified by hand. The results suggest our approach is effective and reveals several problems in the DBpedia ontology.
