Abstract

In this paper, we propose Knowledge Graph (KG), an articulated underlying semantic structure, as a semantic bridge between humans, systems, and scientific knowledge. To illustrate our proposal, we focus on KG based intelligent survey systems. In state of the art systems, information is hard-coded or implicit, making it hard for researchers to reuse, customise, link, or transmit structured knowledge. Furthermore, such systems do not facilitate dynamic interaction based on semantic structure. We design and implement a knowledge-driven intelligent survey system which is based on knowledge graph, a widely used technology that facilitates sharing and querying hypotheses, survey content, results, and analyses. The approach is developed, implemented, and tested in the field of Linguistics. Syntacticians and morphologists develop theories of grammar of natural languages. To evaluate theories, they seek intuitive grammaticality (well-formedness) judgments from native speakers, which either support hypotheses or provide counter-evidence. Our preliminary
experiments show that a knowledge graph based linguistic survey can provide more nuanced results than traditional document-based grammaticality judgment surveys by allowing for tagging and manipulation of specific linguistic variables.
