ASER (Activities, States, Events, and their Relations)
ASER is a large-scale weighted eventuality knowledge graph, including actions, states, events, and their relations.
The eventualities (i.e., nodes of ASER) are extracted using selected dependency patterns. The edges are based on discourse relations (e.g., Result) in discourse analysis. Besides, conceptualized eventualities in a more abstract level and their relations are also conducted to generalize the knowledge.
In total, ASER (full) contains 438 million eventualities and 648 million edges between eventualities; ASER (core) contains 53 million eventualities and 52 million edges between eventualities. With the help of Probase (now called Microsoft Concept Graph), ASER (concept) contains 15 million conceptualized eventualities and 224 million edges between conceptualied eventualities.
