Modern models of relation extraction for tasks like ACE are based on supervised learning of relations from small hand-labeled corpora. [...] Key Method For each pair of entities that appears in some Freebase relation, we find all sentences containing those entities in a large unlabeled corpus and extract textual features to train a relation classifier.Expand
Distant Supervised Relation Extraction with Wikipedia and Freebase
In this paper we discuss a new approach to extract relational data from unstructured text without the need of hand labeled data. Socalled distant supervision has the advantage that it scales largeExpand
Relation Extraction with Weak Supervision and Distributional Semantics
TLDR
An effective yet efficient algorithm that combines the power of various semantic resources that are automatically mined from a corpus based on distributional semantics that is able to extract a very large set of relations from the web at high precision. Expand
Overcoming Limited Supervision in Relation Extraction: A Pattern-enhanced Distributional Representation Approach
TLDR
This paper proposes a novel co-training framework with a distributional module and a pattern module that can provide complementary supervision for each other to build an effective, unified model of weakly-supervised relation extraction. Expand
Relation Extraction with Synthetic Explanations and Neural Network
TLDR
A way to generate synthetic explanations from a small number of relational trigger words, for each relation, whose resulting explanations achieve comparable accuracy to human produced ones. Expand
Using Distant Supervision for Extracting Relations on a Large Scale
TLDR
This method extracts without supervision occurrences of relations from a corpus and uses them as examples for learning relation patterns and the results of the application of this system to the data of the 2010 Knowledge Base Population evaluation campaign are presented. Expand
Weakly-supervised Relation Extraction by Pattern-enhanced Embedding Learning
TLDR
The integration of distributional and pattern-based methods in a weakly-supervised setting such that the two kinds of methods can provide complementary supervision for each other to build an effective, unified model is studied. Expand
Large-Scale Learning of Relation-Extraction Rules with Distant Supervision from the Web
TLDR
A large-scale relation extraction system which learns grammar-based RE rules from the Web by utilizing large numbers of relation instances as seed, and compares ones learned from local corpora of different sizes to demonstrate that the Web is indeed needed for a good coverage of linguistic variation. Expand
Ontological Smoothing for Relation Extraction with Minimal Supervision
TLDR
Experiments on 65 relations across three target domains show that ontological smoothing can dramatically improve precision and recall, even rivaling fully supervised performance in many cases. Expand
Knowledge-Based Weak Supervision for Information Extraction of Overlapping Relations
TLDR
A novel approach for multi-instance learning with overlapping relations that combines a sentence-level extraction model with a simple, corpus-level component for aggregating the individual facts is presented. Expand
Unsupervised Relation Extraction with General Domain Knowledge
TLDR
Evaluation results on the ACE 2007 English Relation Detection and Categorization (RDC) task show that the proposed model outperforms competitive unsupervised approaches by a wide margin and is able to produce clusters shaped by both the data and the rules. Expand

TLDR
