Bottom-Up Constituency Parsing and Nested Named Entity Recognition with Pointer Networks

Constituency parsing and nested named entity recognition (NER) are typical nested structured prediction tasks since they both aim to predict a collection of nested and non-crossing spans. There are many previous studies adapting constituency parsing methods to tackle nested NER. In this work, we propose a novel global pointing mechanism for bottom-up parsing with pointer networks to do both tasks, which needs linear steps to parse. Our method obtain the state-of-the-art performance on PTB among all BERT-based models (96.01 F1 score) and competitive performance on CTB7 in constituency parsing; and comparable performance on three benchmark datasets of nested NER: ACE2004, ACE2005, and GENIA. Our code is publicly available at <https://github.com/sustcsonglin/pointer-net-for-nested>
