Automating Class/Instance Representational Choices in Knowledge Bases

, , and

We present a method for making decisions as to whether an entity in a knowledge base should be a class or an instance based on external evidence in the form of corresponding textual corpora such as Wikipedia articles. The approach, based on machine classification of the text, avoids the need for feature engineering and provides valuable guidance when building or refining large knowledge bases. The approach works well over different domains and outperforms a variety of other state-of-the-art approaches.
