Distant supervision for relation extraction with hierarchical selective attention.

Summary of "Distant supervision for relation extraction with hierarchical selective attention."

Distant supervised relation extraction is an important task in the field of natural language processing. There are two main shortcomings for most state-of-the-art methods. One is that they take all sentences of an entity pair as input, which would result in a large computational cost. But in fact, few of most relevant sentences are enough to recognize the relation of an entity pair. To tackle these problems, we propose a novel hierarchical selective attention network for relation extraction under distant supervision. Our model first selects most relevant sentences by taking coarse sentence-level attention on all sentences of an entity pair and then employs word-level attention to construct sentence representations and fine sentence-level attention to aggregate these sentence representations. Experimental results on a widely used dataset demonstrate that our method performs significantly better than most of existing methods.

The selective extraction of deciduous teeth during the stage of mixed dentition in accordance with the shedding and eruption of the teeth. It is done over an extended period to allow autonomous adjustment to relieve crowding of the dental arches during the eruption of the lateral incisors, canines, and premolars, eventually involving the extraction of the first premolar teeth.
