Automatically constructing knowledge bases from online resources has become a crucial task in many research areas. Most existing knowledge bases are built from English re- sources, while few efforts have been made for other languages. Building knowledge bases for Chinese is of great importance on its own right. However, simply adapting existing tool- s from English to Chinese yields inferior re- sults.In this paper, we propose to create Chi- nese knowledge bases from online resources with less human involvement.This project will be formulated in a self-supervised framework which requires little manual work to extrac- t knowledge facts from online encyclopedia resources in a probabilistic view.In addition, this framework will be able to update the con- structed knowledge base with knowledge...
