Improving Zero-Shot Multi-Lingual Entity Linking

no code implementations16 Apr 2021 Elliot Schumacher, James Mayfield, Mark Dredze

Entity linking -- the task of identifying references in free text to relevant knowledge base representations -- often focuses on single languages.

Entity Linking

Cross-Lingual Transfer in Zero-Shot Cross-Language Entity Linking

1 code implementation19 Oct 2020 Elliot Schumacher, James Mayfield, Mark Dredze

We find that the multilingual ability of BERT leads to robust performance in monolingual and multilingual settings.

Cross-Lingual Transfer Entity Linking

Tagging Location Phrases in Text

no code implementations LREC 2020 Paul McNamee, James Mayfield, Cash Costello, Caitlyn Bishop, Shelby Anderson

Throughout this time the majority of such work has focused on detection and classification of entities into coarse-grained types like: PERSON, ORGANIZATION, and LOCATION.

Dragonfly: Advances in Non-Speaker Annotation for Low Resource Languages

no code implementations LREC 2020 Cash Costello, Shelby Anderson, Caitlyn Bishop, James Mayfield, Paul McNamee

Dragonfly is an open source software tool that supports annotation of text in a low resource language by non-speakers of the language.

Improving Neural Named Entity Recognition with Gazetteers

1 code implementation6 Mar 2020 Chan Hee Song, Dawn Lawrie, Tim Finin, James Mayfield

The goal of this work is to improve the performance of a neural named entity recognition system by adding input features that indicate a word is part of a name included in a gazetteer.

Named Entity Recognition NER

Platforms for Non-speakers Annotating Names in Any Language

no code implementations ACL 2018 Ying Lin, Cash Costello, Boliang Zhang, Di Lu, Heng Ji, James Mayfield, Paul McNamee

We demonstrate two annotation platforms that allow an English speaker to annotate names for any language without knowing the language.

Language-Independent Named Entity Analysis Using Parallel Projection and Rule-Based Disambiguation

no code implementations WS 2017 James Mayfield, Paul McNamee, Cash Costello

The 2017 shared task at the Balto-Slavic NLP workshop requires identifying coarse-grained named entities in seven languages, identifying each entity{'}s base form, and clustering name mentions across the multilingual set of documents.

Named Entity Recognition

Interactive Knowledge Base Population

no code implementations31 May 2015 Travis Wolfe, Mark Dredze, James Mayfield, Paul McNamee, Craig Harman, Tim Finin, Benjamin Van Durme

Most work on building knowledge bases has focused on collecting entities and facts from as large a collection of documents as possible.

Knowledge Base Population

Creating and Curating a Cross-Language Person-Entity Linking Collection

no code implementations LREC 2012 Dawn Lawrie, James Mayfield, Paul McNamee, Douglas Oard

To stimulate research in cross-language entity linking, we present a new test collection for evaluating the accuracy of cross-language entity linking in twenty-one languages.
