Relation Mention Extraction from Noisy Data with Hierarchical Reinforcement Learning

  title={Relation Mention Extraction from Noisy Data with Hierarchical Reinforcement Learning},
  author={Jun Feng and Minlie Huang and Yijie Zhang and Yang Yang and Xiaoyan Zhu},
In this paper we address a task of relation mention extraction from noisy data: extracting representative phrases for a particular relation from noisy sentences that are collected via distant supervision. Despite its significance and value in many downstream applications, this task is less studied on noisy data. The major challenges exists in 1) the lack of annotation on mention phrases, and more severely, 2) handling noisy sentences which do not express a relation at all. To address the two… Expand
