Named entity recognition architecture combining contextual and global features

by   Tran Thi Hong Hanh, et al.

Named entity recognition (NER) is an information extraction technique that aims to locate and classify named entities (e.g., organizations, locations,...) within a document into predefined categories. Correctly identifying these phrases plays a significant role in simplifying information access. However, it remains a difficult task because named entities (NEs) have multiple forms and they are context-dependent. While the context can be represented by contextual features, global relations are often misrepresented by those models. In this paper, we propose the combination of contextual features from XLNet and global features from Graph Convolution Network (GCN) to enhance NER performance. Experiments over a widely-used dataset, CoNLL 2003, show the benefits of our strategy, with results competitive with the state of the art (SOTA).
