Knowledge Graphs and Neurosymbolic AI

Knowledge Graphs provide a robust framework for organizing and representing large-scale knowledge in machine-readable formats. Their flexibility and scalability in capturing knowledge makes them invaluable across diverse domains, fostering seamless integration with Machine Learning techniques. This integration enhances their relevance for traditional AI applications and positions them as crucial components in the emerging field of Neurosymbolic AI. At its core, Neurosymbolic AI bridges the strengths of symbolic reasoning and neural network learning.

In the current ever-evolving landscape of AI, this workshop aims to unravel the potential lying at the intersection of Knowledge Graphs and Neurosymbolic AI. Neurosymbolic AI/Machine Learning techniques can be applied to construct and refine Knowledge Graphs, contributing to their ongoing evolution. Simultaneously, leveraging Knowledge Graphs for learning in Neurosymbolic AI allows intelligent systems to draw insights from structured and unstructured symbolic representations, paving the way for more informed AI models and improving interpretability and transparency in their decision-making process.

We invite papers that explore these synergies as well as any other combinations, seeking to gain a better understanding of how Knowledge Graphs and Neurosymbolic AI influence and benefit each other. Application papers and extended abstracts of published papers are also welcome.
