Learning Contextualized Knowledge Structures for Commonsense Reasoning

Recently, knowledge graph (KG) augmented models have achieved noteworthy success on various commonsense reasoning tasks. However, KG edge (fact) sparsity and noisy edge extraction/generation often hinder models from obtaining useful knowledge to reason over. To address these issues, we propose a new KG-augmented model: Hybrid Graph Network (HGN). Unlike prior methods, HGN learns to jointly contextualize extracted and generated knowledge by reasoning over both within a unified graph structure. Given the task input context and an extracted KG subgraph, HGN is trained to generate embeddings for the subgraph's missing edges to form a "hybrid" graph, then reason over the hybrid graph while filtering out context-irrelevant edges. We demonstrate HGN's effectiveness through considerable performance gains across four commonsense reasoning benchmarks, plus a user study on edge validness and helpfulness.
