Knowledge Induction Team @ IBM Research AI - overview


About Us

 
Our mission is to push the boundary of science and technology to induce knowledge graphs automatically from text. Our goal is to drive the research community while at the same time innovating IBM products, with focus on enterprise search and conversational systems. We are part of the IBM Research AI organization and we have offices in multiple locations, including the IBM Watson Global Headquartes in New York City, the IBM Thomas J. Watson Research Center, Yorktown Heights, the MIT-IBM Watson AI Lab, Cambridge, MA and at the IBM Research - Almaden  lab, CA.
 
Our work focuses on: 
  • Taxonomy Induction
  • Frame Induction
  • Semantic Web
  • Knowledge Base Completion
  • Exploratory Search
  • Table Understanding and Retrieval
  • Question Answering
