A Comprehensive Comparison of Word Embeddings in Event Entity Coreference Resolution

by   Judicael Poumay, et al.
University of Liège

Coreference Resolution is an important NLP task and most state-of-the-art methods rely on word embeddings for word representation. However, one issue that has been largely overlooked in literature is that of comparing the performance of different embeddings across and within families in this task. Therefore, we frame our study in the context of Event and Entity Coreference Resolution (EvCR EnCR), and address two questions : 1) Is there a trade-off between performance (predictive run-time) and embedding size? 2) How do the embeddings' performance compare within and across families? Our experiments reveal several interesting findings. First, we observe diminishing returns in performance with respect to embedding size. E.g. a model using solely a character embedding achieves 86 GloVe, Character) while being 1.2 multiple embeddings learns faster overall despite being slower per epoch. However, it is still slower at test time. Finally, Elmo performs best on both EvCR and EnCR, while GloVe and FastText perform best in EvCR and EnCR respectively.
