Abstract: Sources of commonsense knowledge aim to support applications in natural language understanding, computer vision, and knowledge graphs. These sources contain complementary knowledge to each other, which makes their integration desired. Yet, such integration is not trivial because of their different foci, modeling approaches, and sparse overlap. In this paper, we propose to consolidate commonsense knowledge by following five principles. We apply these principles to combine seven key sources into a first integrated CommonSense Knowledge Graph (CSKG). We perform analysis of CSKG and its various text and graph embeddings, showing that CSKG is a well-connected graph and that its embeddings provide a useful entry point to the graph. Moreover, we show the impact of CSKG as a source for reasoning evidence retrieval, and for pre-training language models for generalizable downstream reasoning. CSKG and all its embeddings are made publicly available to support further research on commonsense knowledge integration and reasoning.
