Multi-Scale Feature and Metric Learning for Relation Extraction

  title={Multi-Scale Feature and Metric Learning for Relation Extraction},
  author={Mi Zhang and Tieyun Qian},
Existing methods in relation extraction have leveraged the lexical features in the word sequence and the syntactic features in the parse tree. Though effective, the lexical features extracted from the successive word sequence may introduce some noise that has little or no meaningful content. Meanwhile, the syntactic features are usually encoded via graph convolutional networks which have restricted receptive field. To address the above limitations, we propose a multi-scale feature and metric… Expand

Graph Convolution over Pruned Dependency Trees Improves Relation Extraction
An extension of graph convolutional networks that is tailored for relation extraction, which pools information over arbitrary dependency structures efficiently in parallel is proposed, and a novel pruning strategy is applied to the input trees by keeping words immediately around the shortest path between the two entities among which a relation might hold.
