  title={Relation Classification via Convolutional Deep Neural Network},
  author={Daojian Zeng and Kang Liu and Siwei Lai and Guangyou Zhou and Jun Zhao},
The state-of-the-art methods used for relation classification are primarily based on statistical machine learning, and their performance strongly depends on the quality of the extracted features. [] Key Method Our method takes all of the word tokens as input without complicated pre-processing. First, the word tokens are transformed to vectors by looking up word embeddings 1 . Then, lexical level features are extracted according to the given nouns.
