Combining Explicit and Latent Web Semantics for Maintaining Knowledge Graphs

  1. 1. 1 Combining Explicit and Latent Web Semantics Paul Groth - @pgroth Elsevier Labs BigNet : WWW 2018 Thanks to Ron Daniel, Brad Allen & the Labs Team Empowering KnowledgeTM for Maintaining Knowledge Graphs
  2. 2. 2 Outline Goal: to tell you our current thinking and to get your feedback • Why we’re interested • What we’ve tried • What we’re missing • Webby Data • 2 Sources of Semantics • State of the art • What’s missing Warning: The back half is like a probably incomplete literature review so think of this as pointers 

  4. 4. 4
  5. 5. 5 EMMeT (Elsevier Merged Medical Taxonomy) EMMeT is a multilingual, concept-based clinical ontology • Multilingual: English, French, Spanish • Concept-based: All terms, synonyms, translations, mappings are related to a unique identifier (“IMUI”) • Ontology: Provides semantic relationships between concepts (symptoms of a disease, treatment procedures of a disease, complications of a disease or a procedure, etc…) EMMeT is a controlled reference terminology • Based on Unified Medical Language System (UMLS), standard clinical terminologies as well as Elsevier proprietary vocabularies and lists of acronyms • Explicitly mapped to international medical standards (SNOMED-CT, ICD-9-CM, ICD-10-CM, LOINC, RXNorm, CVX, etc.) and Elsevier’s vocabularies (Gold Standard, EMTREE, etc.) EMMeT is current • Continuously updated, and released every 12 weeks for automatic indexing • Updated daily and available via an API for manual tagging access • Maintained by a team of medical terminology experts,

  8. 8. 8 Rankings of EMMeT’s ontological relationships • Relationships are ranked according to 5-tiered ranking model: for simplicity and accessibility. • 10: best option; • 9: second option. When the rank of 10 is not applicable; • 8: given two concepts that are too general to be directly related to a specific disease; • 7: is used as an outlier. • 6: default / non validated. Relationship Ranking Criteria 10 9 8 7 has cause most common common sometimes rare has clinical finding most common common sometimes rare has_complication severity (disease) severe/death high moderate low morbiditiy has_complication prevalence (disease) Strong occurrence/high prevalence Likely occurrence/ commonly prevalent Sometimes occurs Rare occurrence has_complication severity (procedure) critical/death major moderate minor has comorbidity strongly associated Commonly associated Sometimes associated Rarely associated has screening procedure best choice is done sometimes done rarely done has risk factor strongly associated Commonly associated Sometimes associated Rarely associated has diagnostic procedure best choice commonly done sometimes done rarely done has differential diagnosis Strong occurrence/high prevalence Likely occurrence/ commonly prevalent Sometimes occurs/ low prevalence Rare occurrence has drug best choice 2nd line 3rd line rarely given has contraindication drug Strongly avoid/black box Commonly avoid Sometimes avoid Rarely avoid has treatment procedure best choice commonly done sometimes done rarely done has prevention Best option common option sometimes advised rarely advised has physician specialty specific specialty general/specialty broad rare has device standard device acceptable device sometimes used rarely used
  9. 9. 9 From EMMeT to H-Graph • Based on EMMeT • Support more complex relations including patient context (Clinical Overview content + more) • Flexible and extensible model to support links to content, model treatment strategies, numeric values, temporal data, etc. Age, sex, weight, … are very simple context. In people with atrial fibrillation presenting acutely without life-threatening haemodynamic instability, offer rate or rhythm control if the onset of the arrhythmia is less than 48 hours, and start rate control if it is more than 48 hours or is uncertain. NICE Guideline Atrial Fibrillation: Management • Continue to support existing indexing pipelines (e.g. ClinicalKey), and tagging use cases (e.g. Clinical Overviews) From EMMeT… …To H-Graph
  10. 10. 10 Universal Schemas
  11. 11. 11 Universal schemas • … are a specific technique from the Information Extraction and the Automatic Knowledge Base Completion literature • … are an unsupervised method to ‘learn’ by combining text extracts with existing knowledge base assertions • Applications: • Extend a medical knowledge base • scan incoming literature to suggest new additions to EMMeT and show the underlying evidence to the taxonomy editor. • scan literature backlog to find evidence for data already in EMMeT • Literature Surveillance • scan incoming literature to find existing facts even if expressed in very different ways • find new concepts in the literature related to an existing EMMeT concept*. Let taxonomy editor decide whether to add new concept and relation to EMMeT
  12. 12. 12 Open Information Extraction • Knowledge bases are populated by scanning text and doing Information Extraction • Most information extraction systems are looking for very specific things, like drug-drug interactions • Best accuracy for that one kind of data, but misses out on all the other concepts and relations in the text • For broad knowledge base, use Open Information Extraction that only uses some knowledge of grammar • One weird trick for open information extraction … • ReVerb*: 1. Find “relation phrases” starting with a verb and ending with a verb or preposition 2. Find noun phrases before and after the relation phrase 3. Discard relation phrases not used with multiple combinations of arguments. In addition, brain scans were performed to exclude other causes of dementia. * Fader et al. Identifying Relations for Open Information Extraction
  13. 13. 13 ReVerb output After ReVerb pulls out noun phrases, match them up to EMMeT concepts Discard rare concepts, relations, or relations that are not used with many different concepts # SD Documents Scanned 14,000,000 Extracted ReVerb Triples 473,350,566
  14. 14. 14 Universal schemas - Initialization • Method to combine ‘facts’ found by machine reading with stronger assertions from ontology. • Build ExR matrix with entity-pairs as rows and relations as columns. • Relation columns can come from EMMeT, or from ReVerb extractions. • Cells contain 1.0 if that pair of entities is connected by that relation.
  15. 15. 15 Universal schemas - Prediction • Factorize matrix to ExK and KxR, then recombine. • “Learns” the correlations between text relations and EMMeT relations, in the context of pairs of objects. • Find new triples to go into EMMeT e.g., (glaucoma, has_alternativeProcedure, biofeedback)

  36. 36. 36 Units & Measurement Annotations • Time • Dosage • Probability • Percent • Count • Not handled yet Find numbers followed by a unit name or abbreviation (perhaps with scale factor like k, m, G, …). Provide value normalized to SI units. Also provide type of measurement (time, temperature, length, mass, dosage, etc.) based on unit. Handling tolerances, ranges, probabilities, and counts adds complexity. Conjunctions not yet handled but very important. Current work – identify the property being measured (e.g. dosages of AA, indomethacin, HtE, leptin, etc.) Additionally at 120 min following glucose administration, the 100 mg/kg 5g and 5e groups had significantly (P ⩽ 0.005) a greater drop in blood glucose than the 10 and 50 mg/kg groups. In the mouse xenograft model of LLC cells in C57BL/6J mice, once daily administration of AA (50 and 100 mg/kg) inhibited tumor growth in a dose-dependent manner (Fig. 6A and C). Groups of Swiss mice (n = 6) were treated (p.o.) with vehicle, indomethacin (10 mg/kg-Roche®) or HtE (50, 100 or 200 mg/kg) 1 h before administration of carrageenan at 2.5% (Sigma-Aldrich®) injected subcutaneously into the plantar region of the left hind paw and phosphate buffer saline (PBS) in right hind paw. In the experiments designed to study the antidepressant-like effect of the repeated treatment (for 14 days) of EET, the immobility time in the TST and the locomotor activity in the open-field were assessed in independent groups of mice 24 h after the last daily administration of EET (10–100 mg/kg, p.o.). Hoppers containing chow were removed from the cages 1 h before the administration of leptin [depending on studies, 5 mg/kg or 2.5 mg/kg, ip; mouse recombinant leptin obtained from Dr. A.F.
