DM\_NLP at SemEval-2018 Task 12: A Pipeline System for Toponym Resolution

This paper describes DM-NLP{'}s system for toponym resolution task at Semeval 2019. Our system was developed for toponym detection, disambiguation and end-to-end resolution which is a pipeline of the former two... For toponym detection, we utilized the state-of-the-art sequence labeling model, namely, BiLSTM-CRF model as backbone. A lot of strategies are adopted for further improvement, such as pre-training, model ensemble, model averaging and data augment. For toponym disambiguation, we adopted the widely used searching and ranking framework. For ranking, we proposed several effective features for measuring the consistency between the detected toponym and toponyms in GeoNames. Eventually, our system achieved the best performance among all the submitted results in each sub task. read more
