The Need to Move beyond Triples

Abstract : Almost all major knowledge bases are concerned mainly with binary relationships between entities. In this vision paper, we argue that it is time to broaden this view: first to relations of higher arity, complex objects, and events, and then also to knowledge about knowledge: We should be able to represent why something is true, that something is not true, that something happened before something else, or that something is mainly believed. While this idea is as old as Artificial Intelligence itself, we argue that only now we have the tools to achieve it: a better understanding of our use-cases and large amounts of data. We survey relevant approaches, and point out avenues of research.
