English abstract:
Nowadays we have very large knowledge graphs that organize common-sense knowledge about the world. They have been successfully deployed in many areas, but the quality and relevance of the contained knowledge varies greatly, and diverse knowledge domains are unpredictably intertwined. This paper summarizes our preliminary efforts at exploiting knowledge graphs to build digestible and reliable Description Logic ontologies for specific common-sense topics. We describe a simple yet effective approach to building small- to middle-sized topic ontologies with moderate efforts. It is implemented in a proof-of-concept tool with a command-line interface for quickly creating axioms by selecting from suggestions extracted from the ConceptNet knowledge graph. To illustrate the kind of ontologies that can be built, we describe a few example ontologies, which contain up to a few hundred concepts and roles, and were built in a couple of hours.
