Conference paper Open Access
Integration of symbolic and sub-symbolic approaches is rapidly emerging as an Artificial Intelligence (AI) paradigm. This paper presents a proof-of-concept approach towards an unsupervised learning method, based on Restricted Boltzmann Machines (RBMs), for extracting semantic associations among prominent entities within data. Validation of the approach is performed in two datasets that connect language and vision, namely Visual Genome and GQA. A methodology to formally structure the extracted knowledge for subsequent use through reasoning engines is also offered.
