A view to a KILL: Knowledge Injection via Lambda Layer

Matteo Magnini  /  Matteo Magnini, Giovanni Ciatto, Andrea Omicini

We propose KILL (Knowledge Injection via Lambda Layer) as a novel method for the injection of symbolic knowledge into neural networks (NN) allowing data scientists to control what the network should (not) learn. Unlike other similar approaches, our method does not (i) require ground input formulae, (ii) impose any constraint on the NN undergoing injection, (iii) affect the loss function of the NN. Instead, it acts directly at the backpropagation level, by increasing penalty whenever the NN output is violating the injected knowledge. Experiments are reported to demonstrate the potential (and limits) of our approach.
