Understanding current world events in real-time involves sifting through newsarticles, tweets, photos, and videos from many different perspectives. The goal ofthe DARPA-funded AIDA project1is to automate much of this process, buildinga knowledge base that can be queried to strategically generate hypotheses aboutdifferent aspects of an event. We are participating in this project as a TA1 team,and we are building the first step of the overall system. Given raw multimodalinput (e.g., text, images, video), our goal is to generate a knowledge graph withentities, events, and relations.
