2 Outline Relation Clustering Remaining Challenges for Entity Linking
3 Relation Clustering: The paper from ten years ago (Hasegawa et al., 2014) Relation Clustering Remaining Challenges for Entity Linking
Relation Discovery Overview Assume that pairs of entities occurring in similar context can be clustered and each pair in a cluster is an instance of the relation. o 1. Tag NE in text corpora o 2. Get co-occurrence pairs of NE and their context o 3. Measure context similarities among pairs of NEs. o 4. Make clusters of pairs of NEs. o 5. Label each cluster of pairs of NEs. Run NE tagger, get all context words within a certain distance; if context words of A-B and C-D pair are similar, these two pairs are placed into the same cluster(the same relation), in this case the relation is merger and acquisition.
NE tagging use the extended NE tagger(Sekine, 2001) to detect useful relations. Collect intervening words between two NEs for each co- occurrence. o Two NEs are considered to co-occur if they appear within the same sentence and separated by at most N intervening words. o Different orders are considered as different contexts. That is, e 1 …e 2 and e 2 …e 1 are collected as different contexts. o Passive voice : collect the base forms of words which are stemmed by a POS tagger, but verb past participles are distinguished from other verb forms. Less frequent pairs of NEs should be eliminated. o Set a frequency threshold
Relation Discovery Calculate similarity between the set of contexts of NE pairs. o Vector space model and cosine similarity o Only compare NE pairs which have the same types, e.g., one PERSON-GPE pair and another PERSON-GPE pair. o Eliminate stop words, words in parallel expressions, and expressions peculiar to particular source documents. A context vector for each NE pair consists of the bag of words formed from all intervening words from all co-occurrences of two NEs. o Different orders: if a word w i occurred L times in e 1 …e 2, M times in e 2 …e 1, the tf i of w i is defined as L-M. o If the norm |α| is small due to the lack of context words, the similarity might be unreliable, so define a threshold to eliminate short context vectors.
Relation Discovery We can cluster the NE pairs base on the similarity among context vectors of them. o We do not know the # of clusters in advance so we adopt hierarchical clustering. o Using complete linkage Label the cluster with the most frequent word in all combinations of the NE pairs in the same cluster. o The frequencies are normalized.
Discussions How will embeddings play a role here? Did/Will we make fundamental changes to this “old” framework?

Chicago was used by default for Mac menus through MacOS 7.6, and OS 8 was released mid-1997.. Chicago VIII was one of the early 70s-era Chicago albums to catch my ear, along with Chicago II.
