KGR4XAI

The 1st International Workshop on Knowledge Graph Reasoning for Explainable Artificial Intelligence
co-located with 10th International Joint Conference on Knowledge Graphs (IJCKG 2021)

Schedule (tentative)

Scope

Machine learning has promoted the application of artificial intelligence (AI) techniques to a wide variety of social problems. Accordingly, being able to explain the reason for an AI decision is becoming important to ensure the secure and safe use of AI techniques. On this background, the Knowledge Graph Reasoning Challenge (KGRC) has been organized from 2018(*). It aims to promote techniques for explainable AI using knowledge graphs. The challenge provides a common task to estimate criminals with a reasonable explanation based on an open knowledge graph of a well-known Sherlock Holmes mystery story. Variety of systems and ideas were submitted such as the approach of constraint satisfaction problem solving, the approach of logical rules and machine learning techniques including knowledge graph embeddings. And we had a lot of fruitful discussions.

In this workshop we would like to discuss a wider variety of knowledge graph reasoning technologies for explainable AI in various domains. Although one typical topic is to solve mystery stories in the KGRC, knowledge graphs and related technologies in other domains are also welcome.
