Google is automatically building its next generation knowledge graph named Knowledge Vault
Although article is very pop-science (not science at all actually) and doesn’t contain any technical detail, it is clear on google’s idea and the way information retrieval systems head. Automatic knowledge gathering and fact extraction is also what I originally aimed at Reverbrain company, although my idea was much simpler – I wanted to automatically build a language model and fact relations between words to understand native language questions.
Aug 25 there will be a presentation of Google’s Knowledge Vault, I’m too much tempting to see it and try to gather and understand bits of information on how it is implemented inside.
