Knowledge graphs contain only a subset of what is true. Following recent success of Question Answering systems in outperforming humans, we employ the developed tools to complete knowledge graph. To create the questions automatically, we explore domain-specific lexicalization patterns. We outline the overall procedure and discuss preliminary results.
