Domain Knowledge Graph Construction and Reasoning Techniques on Multi-Source Data


In recent years, the demand for knowledge graph has changed from simple data support to complex decision support, which requires the knowledge graph to evolve from a single source to multi-source.

At present, there are many types of raw materials can be used for knowledge graph construction, including table data, text data, voice data, picture data and other structured, semi-structured and unstructured data. However, in most cases, the data scatter, meanwhile the standards of each data source are different, there are data errors or conflicts. For example, in many scenes, the problem of knowledge attribute alignment and mapping among various sub platforms within the enterprise is common, which can lead to the lack of information between demand insight side and supply side.

There are many methods can be applied to help build the domain knowledge graph on multi-source data. For example, extraction and fusion technology can be applied to the attribute completion, alignment and normalization, which can pull through the mapping between the CPV attribute and the retail downstream attribute of each side, and better establish the connection between the demand side and the supply side. Meanwhile, relation reasoning technology can establish a clear industrial chain to enrich our knowledge graph, which can improve the platform's planning, sourcing ability, and then help customers find more efficient sources of goods.
