These techniques assume that a low number of edges on the shortest pathway indicates conceptual similarity. Although this technique has proven valid in conforming to psychological data, we test the usefulness of additional pathway variables in ConceptNet, such as edge type and user-rated score. Our results show strong evidence for the application of additional pathway variables in calculating semantic similarity. 1 ConceptNet Pathways ConceptNet 3 is one of the largest commonsense semantic networks in existence, relying on its users to make conceptual assertions and collectively vote on the legitimacy of other users’ ...
