Named-Entity Linking Using Deep Learning For Legal Documents: A Transfer Learning Approach

10/15/2018 ∙ by Ahmed Elnaggar, et al. ∙ Technische Universität München 0

In the legal domain it is important to differentiate between words in general, and afterwards to link the occurrences of the same entities. The topic to solve these challenges is called Named-Entity Linking (NEL). Current supervised neural networks designed for NEL use publicly available datasets for training and testing. However, this paper focuses especially on the aspect of applying transfer learning approach using networks trained for NEL to legal documents. Experiments show consistent improvement in the legal datasets that were created from the European Union law in the scope of this research. Using transfer learning approach, we reached F1-score of 98.90% and 98.01% on the legal small and large test dataset.
