Multi-relational / hyper-relational knowledge graphs

I ran across a mention of “Message Passing for Hyper-Relational Knowledge Graphs” (a #GNN architecture for hyper-relational KGs like @wikidata) and wanted to capture it somewhere, so here’s a new thread. :slight_smile:

Here’s the twitter thread about it:

Also, here’s a good intro presentation to CompGCN (Composition-based Multi-Relational Graph Convolutional Networks) (PDF).


Thank you, good catch! Still not recursive hypergraphs, but they’re getting there :->

Thank you @peterkaminski for surfacing this

link to the paper

I’ve been out of academic discussion related to
Lanugage-Orineted Programming

for the past 25 years.

The concept of Multi-relational graph is the missing link connecting Language-Oriented Programming, Engelbart’s Augmentation Research Tree-Meta
and my current work on MindGraph
between parse-trees and knowledge graphs

It is analogous to the link between Monad and Grammars,

but more relevant if you have an interest in Knowledge Graphs.
It does not (yet) have a wikipedia entry.
It is all about the same “Thing”, the elephant in the room I like to call “Symbolic Unity”, all mutually arising from the Metaphysics of Adjacency

This is where the requirement of notability is a hindrance to the growth of knowledge
Understandable, but all because we do not have emergent networks of personal knowledge graph that are themselves discoverable.
That’s what need building. That’s what I am working on.

Where I collect resources for this nexus under the banner MindGraph. It is Open, so anyone can link to it and add to it.

tuning in and appreciating the language here
also finding — what doesn’t have an entry yet, did you name “it” or as yet unnamed?

As shown above, search for the term multi-relational graph on wikipedia returns no matches.
Yet you can find articles matching the term like

I am a long time researcher in this space, yet haven’t come cross it.

Google and other search engine do a great job of auto-associative recall, i.e. giving you all the documents on the web that contain the terms you search for.

But as Engelbart asked back in 2007 at Google:

“Google might be proudly saying, we are doing a lot to help people find things on the net frontier,
Who is doing the job of maybe making better maps understanding the frontier”

Organizing knowledge right at the edges of the “endless frontier” of knowledge from inception, through indwelling and growth in networks of people who care, to the point of it being notable and part of “The Common Record”. Empower People at the edges to do it for themselves, share and have conversations over their HyperMaps,of the edges, federate these conversations in emergent communities.

With the Wiki, Ward Cunningham gave us the ability to “create a new linked” page when you reach the edge of your knowledge"

What we need is for everybody to be able to do that, and at the same time have conversations with other people in an interest based emergent social network of thoughts and thinkers.
