A paper titled "Supervised Learning of the Global Risk Network Activation from Media Event Reports," by Xian Liu, Gyorgy Korniss and Boleslaw K. Szymanski appeared in SN Computer Science, 1:29 (2020) on Oct. 14, 2019. The paper studies the World Economic Forum (WEF) annual reports of global risks which have the high impact on the world’s economy. Currently, many researchers analyze the modeling and evolution of risks. However, few studies focus on validation of the global risk networks published by the WEF. In this paper, we first create a risk knowledge graph from the annotated risk events crawled from the Wikipedia. Then, we compare the relational dependencies of risks in the WEF and Wikipedia networks and find that they share over 50% of their edges. Moreover, the edges unique to each network signify the different perspectives of the experts and the public on global risks. To reduce the cost of manual annotation of events triggering risk activation, we build an auto-detection tool which filters out over 80% media reported events unrelated to the global risks. In the process of filtering, our tool also continuously learns keywords relevant to global risks from the event sentences. Using locations of events extracted from the risk knowledge graph, we find characteristics of geographical distributions of the categories of global risks.
