Multilevel Entity-Informed Business Relation Extraction


This paper describes a business relation extraction system that combines contextualized language models with multiple levels of entity knowledge. Our contributions are three-folds: (1) a novel characterization of business relations, (2) the first large English dataset of more than 10k relation instances manually annotated according to this characterization, and (3) multiple neural architectures based on BERT, newly augmented with three complementary levels of knowledge about entities: generalization over entity type, pre-trained entity embeddings learned from two external knowledge graphs, and an entity-knowledge-aware attention mechanism. Our results show an improvement over many strong knowledge-agnostic and knowledge-enhanced state of the art models for relation extraction.
