URDF: Reasoning in Uncertain KB’s Knowledge harvesting from the Web may yield knowledge bases which are – Incomplete bornIn(Albert_Einstein,?x)  {} – Incorrect bornIn(Albert_Einstein,?x)  {Stuttgart} – Inconsistent bornIn(Albert_Einstein,?x)  {Ulm, Stuttgart} Combine grounding of first-order logic rules with additional step of consistency reasoning – Propositional – Constrained Weighted MaxSat – Probabilistic – Lineage & Possible Worlds Semantics  At query time! 5 [Theobald,Sozio,Suchanek,Nakashole: MPII Tech-Report‘10] 0.7 0.2

Soft Rules vs. Hard Constraints (Soft) Inference Rules vs. (Hard) Consistency Constraints People may live in more than one place livesIn(x,y)  marriedTo(x,z)  livesIn(z,y) livesIn(x,y)  hasChild(x,z)  livesIn(z,y) People are not born in different places/on different dates bornIn(x,y)  bornIn(x,z)  y=z People are not married to more than one person (at the same time, in most countries?) marriedTo(x,y,t1)  marriedTo(x,z,t2)  y≠z  disjoint(t1,t2 ) 6 [0.6] [0.2]

Soft Rules vs. Hard Constraints (ct’d) Enforce FD‘s (e.g., mutual exclusion) as hard constraints: Generalize to other forms of constraints: Hard constraint Soft constraint hasAdvisor(x,y)  graduatedInYear(x,t)  graduatedInYear(y,s)  s < t firstPaper(x,p)  firstPaper(y,q)  author(p,x)  author(p,y)  inYear(p) > inYear(q)+5years  hasAdvisor(x,y) [0.6] livesIn(x,y)  type(y,City)  locatedIn(y,z)  type(z,Country)  livesIn(x,z) hasAdvisor(x,y)  hasAdvisor(x,z)  y=z Combine soft and hard constraints No longer regular MaxSat Constrained (weighted) MaxSat instead Combine soft and hard constraints No longer regular MaxSat Constrained (weighted) MaxSat instead 7 Datalog-style grounding (deductive & potentially recursive soft rules) Datalog-style grounding (deductive & potentially recursive soft rules)

TARSQI: Extracting Time Annotations Hong Kong is poised to hold the first election in more than half a century that includes a democracy advocate seeking high office in territory controlled by the Chinese government in Beijing. A pro- democracy politician, Alan Leong, announced Wednesday that he had obtained enough nominations to appear on the ballot to become the territory’s next chief executive. But he acknowledged that he had no chance of beating the Beijing-backed incumbent, Donald Tsang, who is seeking re- election. Under electoral rules imposed by Chinese officials, only 796 people on the election committee – the bulk of them with close ties to mainland China – will be allowed to vote in the March 25 election. It will be the first contested election for chief executive since Britain returned Hong Kong to China in 1997. Mr. Tsang, an able administrator who took office during the early stages of a sharp economic upturn in 2005, is popular with the general public. Polls consistently indicate that three-fifths of Hong Kong’s people approve of the job he has been doing. It is of course a foregone conclusion – Donald Tsang will be elected and will hold office for another five years, said Mr. Leong, the former chairman of the Hong Kong Bar Association.
