Total Relation Recall: High-Recall Relation Extraction
MetadataShow full item record
As Knowledge Graphs (KGs) become important in a wide range of applications, including question-answering and recommender systems, more and more enterprises have recognized the value of constructing KGs with their own data. While enterprise data consists of structured and unstructured data, companies primarily focus on structured ones, which are easier to exploit than unstructured ones. However, most enterprise data are unstructured, including intranet, documents, and emails, where plenty of business insights live. Therefore, companies would like to utilize unstructured data as well, and KGs are an excellent way to collect and organize information from unstructured data. In this thesis, we introduce a novel task, Total Relation Recall (TRR), that leverages the enterprise's unstructured documents to build KGs using high-recall relation extraction. Given a target relation and its relevant information, TRR aims to extract all instances of such relation from the given documents. We propose a Python-based system to address this task. To evaluate the effectiveness of our system, we conduct experiments on 12 different relations with two news article corpora. Moreover, we conduct an ablation study to investigate the impact of natural language processing (NLP) features.
