Machine Learning and Knowledge Representation: a synergic approach for Business Oriented Natural Language Processing
Business oriented natural language applications require historically high precision, especially when supporting critical decisions. For this reason, they have been mainly developed with Knowledge Management (KM) and reasoning approaches, as they enable to model precisely the rules of languages and their usage with very little ambiguity at the expense of coverage. In last years, data driven approaches tackled the coverage problem in Natural Language Processing (NLP) by 1) enabling to learn language generalization patterns and 2) tailoring such patterns on different domains. However, data-driven approaches, like Machine Learning (ML) and Deep Learning (DL), works at the expense of precision and control. In Almawave we've developed a complex pipeline of orchestrable NLP modules made of KM, reasoning and ML/DL. This pipeline enables to treat each business case either with KM, ML/DL or both, resulting in a flexible and reusable architecture. Once information is discovered and extracted in texts with these modules, it is modeled and used to enable complex business processes. Here, we present the Almawave architecture and how data-driven approaches help classical KM systems in defining complex decision processes in different application domains.Speech language: Italian
