A Unified Extracted Knowledge Graph from Online Textbooks

Unsupervised Construction of Knowledge Graphs From Text and Code


Knowledge Discovery in Databases (KDD) workshop in ML in Graphs (MLG) 2019

The scientific literature is a rich source of information for data mining with conceptual knowledge graphs; the open science movement has enriched this literature with complementary source code that implement their respective scientific models. To exploit this new resource, we construct a knowledge graph using unsupervised learning methods to identify conceptual entities. We associate source code entities to these natural language concepts using expert rules.

Practical naming conventions for methods and functions tend to reflect the concept they implement. We take advantage of this specificity by presenting a novel process for joint clustering text concepts that combines word-embeddings, nonlinear dimensionality reduction, and clustering techniques to assist in understanding, organizing, and comparing software in the open science ecosystem. With our pipeline, we aim to assist scientists in building on existing models in their discipline when making novel models for new phenomena. By combining source code and conceptual information, our knowledge graph enhances bibliometric understandings of scientific literature.
