}

Requirement

Python: 3.6  
Keras: 2.2.2
Keras-contrib: 2.0.8
jieba: 0.39

Dataset

We use a standard Weibo NER dataset provided by Peng and Dredze, 2015, and a formal MSRA News dataset provided by Levow, 2006.

Pretrained Embeddings

The pretrained character and word embeddings are provided by Tencent AI Lab. Download it here.

The radical embedding is randomly initialized.

How to Run

  1. Install all requirements
pip install keras==2.2.2  # for Keras
pip install git+https://www.github.com/keras-team/keras-contrib.git  # for CRF layer
pip install jieba  # for word segmentation 
  1. Download pretrained embeddings Download Tencent Embeddings, extract it and put it in process_data/data_preprocess.

  2. Run the pre-processing code

python concat_data.py
  1. Run the model (with different config)
python main.py --dataset ${weibo/msra} --with_radical ${1/0} --network ${convgru/cnn/bilstm} 
--tagger ${bigrucrf/bilstmcrf} --entity_type ${all/nm/ne}
dataset:
  weibo
  msra
  
with_radical:  # input radical embedding or not
  0  # no radical embedding input, only word embedding and char embedding
  1  # with radical embedding
  
network:  # for characters
  convgru  # Conv-GRU  
  bilstm 
  cnn 
  
tagger:
  bigrucrf  # Bidirectional GRU-CRF 
  bilstmcrf  # Bidirectional LSTM-CRF 
  
entity_type:
  ne  # only Named Entity. e.g. 王小明 (Xiaoming Wang), 北京市 (Beijing City)
  nm  # only Nominal Mention. e.g. 班长 (class president), 妈妈 (mother) 
  all  # take both Named Entity and Nominal Mention into accounts

For example, run the following shell to run our final ME-CNER model on WEIBO dataset, but only recognize named entities (all nominal mentions are ignored).

python main.py --dataset weibo --with_radical 1 --network convgru --tagger bigrucrf --entity_type ne
