  title={Biomedical Event Extraction using Abstract Meaning Representation},
  author={Sudha Rao and Daniel Marcu and Kevin Knight and Hal Daum{\'e}},
We propose a novel, Abstract Meaning Representation (AMR) based approach to identifying molecular events/interactions in biomedical text. Our key contributions are: (1) an empirical validation of our hypothesis that an event is a subgraph of the AMR graph, (2) a neural network-based model that identifies such an event subgraph given an AMR, and (3) a distant supervision based approach to gather additional training data. We evaluate our approach on the 2013 Genia Event Extraction dataset1 (Kim… CONTINUE READING
