    Constructing a Knowledge Graph from Textual Descriptions of Software Vulnerabilities in the National Vulnerability Database Proceedings of the 24th Nordic Conference on Computational Linguistics (NoDaLiDa)


    Knowledge graphs have shown promise for several cybersecurity tasks, such as vulnerability assessment and threat analysis. In this work, we present a new method for constructing a vulnerability knowledge graph from information in the National Vulnerability Database (NVD). Our approach combines named entity recognition (NER), relation extraction (RE), and entity prediction using a combination of neural models, heuristic rules, and knowledge graph embeddings. We demonstrate how our method helps to fix missing entities in knowledge graphs used for cybersecurity and evaluate the performance.

    Macroeconomic uncertainty and bank lending

    Economics Letters, 225. Doi: 10.1016/j.econlet.2023.111041


    We investigate the impact of macro-related uncertainty on bank lending in Norway. We show that an increase in general macroeconomic uncertainty reduces bank lending. Importantly, however, we show that this effect is largely driven by monetary policy uncertainty, suggesting that uncertainty about the monetary policy stance is key for understanding why macro-related uncertainty impacts bank lending.
