Abstract : Automatic knowledge base enrichment methods rely criti-cally on candidate axiom scoring. The most popular scoring heuristics proposed in the literature are based on statistical inference. We argue that such a probability-based framework is not always completely satis-factory and propose a novel, alternative scoring heuristics expressed in terms of possibility theory, whereby a candidate axiom receives a bipolar score consisting of a degree of possibility and a degree of necessity. We evaluate our proposal by applying it to the problem of testing SubClassOf axioms against the DBpedia RDF dataset.
