Automatic Extraction of Commonsense LocatedNear Knowledge

Frank F. Xu, Bill Yuchen Lin, Kenny Zhu

LocatedNear relation is a kind of commonsense knowledge describing two physical objects that are typically found near each other in real life. In this paper, we study how to automatically extract such relationship through a sentence-level relation classifier and aggregating the scores of entity pairs from a large corpus. Also, we release two benchmark datasets for evaluation and future research.
