Semi-supervised semantic pattern discovery with guidance from unsupervised pattern clusters

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

We present a simple algorithm for clustering semantic patterns based on distributional similarity and use cluster memberships to guide semi-supervised pattern discovery. We apply this approach to the task of relation extraction. The evaluation results demonstrate that our novel bootstrapping procedure significantly outperforms a standard bootstrapping. Most importantly, our algorithm can effectively prevent semantic drift and provide semi-supervised learning with a natural stopping criterion.
