Learning Dictionaries for Named Entity Recognition using Minimal Supervision

EACL 2014  ·  Arvind Neelakantan, Michael Collins ·

This paper describes an approach for automatic construction of dictionaries for Named Entity Recognition (NER) using large amounts of unlabeled data and a few seed examples. We use Canonical Correlation Analysis (CCA) to obtain lower dimensional embeddings (representations) for candidate phrases and classify these phrases using a small number of labeled examples... Our method achieves 16.5% and 11.3% F-1 score improvement over co-training on disease and virus NER respectively. We also show that by adding candidate phrase embeddings as features in a sequence tagger gives better performance compared to using word embeddings. read more
