Document-Level Relation Extraction with Adaptive Thresholding and Localized Context Pooling

10/21/2020 ∙ by Wenxuan Zhou, et al. ∙ 0

Document-level relation extraction (RE) poses new challenges compared to its sentence-level RE counterpart. One document commonly contains multiple entity pairs, and one entity pair occurs multiple times in the document associated with multiple possible relations. In this paper, we propose two novel techniques, adaptive thresholding and localized context pooling, to solve the multilabel and multi-entity problems. The adaptive thresholding replaces the global threshold for multi-label classification in the prior work by a learnable entities-dependent threshold. The localized context pooling directly transfers attention from pre-trained language models to locate relevant context that is useful to decide the relation. We experiment on three document-level RE benchmark datasets: DocRED, a recently released large-scale RE dataset, and two datasets CDR and GDA in the biomedical domain. Our ATLOP (Adaptive Thresholding and Localized cOntext Pooling) model achieves an F1 score of 63.4; and also significantly outperforms existing models on both CDR and GDA.
