Chinese Named Entity Recognition Augmented with Lexicon Memory

12/17/2019 ∙ by Yi Zhou, et al. ∙ 0

Inspired by a concept of content-addressable retrieval from cognitive science, we propose a novel fragment-based model augmented with a lexicon-based memory for Chinese NER, in which both the character-level and word-level features are combined to generate better feature representations for possible name candidates. It is observed that locating the boundary information of entity names is useful in order to classify them into pre-defined categories. Position-dependent features, including prefix and suffix are introduced for NER in the form of distributed representation. The lexicon-based memory is used to help generate such position-dependent features and deal with the problem of out-of-vocabulary words. Experimental results showed that the proposed model, called LEMON, achieved state-of-the-art on four datasets.
