Description

Despite considerable advances in deep learning, AI remains to be narrow and brittle. One fundamental limitation is its lack of common sense: intuitive reasoning about everyday situations and events, which in turn, requires a wide spectrum of commonsense knowledge about how the physical and social world works, ranging from naive physics to folk psychology to ethical norms. In this talk, I will share our recent adventures in modeling neuro-symbolic commonsense models by melding symbolic and declarative knowledge stored in large-scale commonsense graphs with neural and implicit knowledge stored in large-scale neural language models. I will conclude the talk by discussing the needs for departing from the currently prevalent learning paradigms that lead to task- or even dataset-specific learning, and open research questions for commonsense AI in light of human cognition.
