Tyler Renslow, Günter Neumann

In: Semeval-2018 Task 7: Semantic relation extraction and classification in scientific papers.. International Workshop on Semantic Evaluation (SemEval-2018) located at NAACL June 5-6 New Orleans LA United States NAACL 6/2018.


We present LIGHTREL, a lightweight and fast relation classifier. Our goal is to develop a high baseline for different relation extraction tasks. By defining only very few data-internal, word-level features and external knowledge sources in the form of word clusters and word embeddings, we train a fast and simple linear classifier.
