NTCIR-13 Actionable Knowledge Graph (AKG) Task
Call For Task Participation

=== Overview ===

Knowledge graph (aka direct displays, cards, etc.) has become an
increasingly common and important component in search engine result pages
(SERPs). The objective of this new pilot task at NTCIR-13 is to foster
research on generating knowledge graphs that are optimised for facilitating
users' actions (buying, booking, downloading, comparing, creating, etc.).
To achieve this objective, we set two subtasks: Action Mining (AM) subtask
and Actionable Knowledge Graph Generation (AKGG) subtask. We hope to
advance the technologies related to actionable knowledge graph
presentations that can be used for search engines.

=== Tasks ===

The second subtask Actionable Knowledge Graph Generation Subtask (AKGG) is
open now for participation.

Actionable Knowledge Graph Generation Subtask (AKGG)
Input: Query, Entity Type, Entity, and Action
Output: A ranked list of attributes of the type

For a given search query, entity included in that query, the type of the
entity, and action (e.g., "kyoto budget travel", "kyoto", location, "visit
a temple"), participants will be asked to rank entity properties based on
their relevance to the query. The query (input) can be ambiguous as in
realistic search queries, and participants need to return the ranked list
of relevant entity properties to create an actionable knowledge graph.
Actions in the test queries will be taken from the outcomes of the first
subtask: Action Mining (AM) Subtask. Properties to be returned will be
those defined as attributes of the entity type in schema.org vocabulary.

Please note:

Task participants must submit a paper to the NTCIR-13 Conference
(unrefereed) and at least one member of each participating group must
attend the conference (December 5-8, 2017, NII, Tokyo, Japan) to present
their work.
