Knowledge gathering, representation, and reasoning are among the fundamental challenges of artificial intelligence. Large-scale repositories of knowledge about entities, relations, and their abstractions are known as “knowledge bases”. Most major technology companies now have substantial efforts in knowledge base construction, and related scholarly work spans many research areas, including machine learning, natural language processing, computer vision, information integration, databases, search, data mining, knowledge representation, human computation, human-computer interfaces, and fairness. The AKBC conference serves as a research forum for all these areas, in both academia and industry.
Nearly ten years after the first AKBC workshop in Grenoble, France, AKBC has become a conference, with two widely-acclaimed instantiations in Amherst MA in 2019 and held virtually last year. Why a new stand-alone conference?
