This paper presents a novel approach for learning with constraints called Semantic-Based Regularization.
This paper shows how prior knowledge in form of First Order Logic (FOL) clauses, converted into a set of continuous constraints and integrated into a learning framework, allows to jointly learn from examples and semantic knowledge.
A series of experiments on artificial learning tasks and application of text categorization in relational context will be presented to emphasize the benefits given by the introduction of logic rules into the learning process.
