How to set up the OntoNotes 5.0 dataset

1. Get data

Download OntoNotes 5.0 from CoNLL-2012 website.

Download SENNA from Collobert's website.

Set their custom paths in ontonotes.py

data_path_prefix = "/home/danniel/Desktop/CONLL2012-intern/conll-2012/v4/data"
test_auto_data_path_prefix = "/home/danniel/Downloads/wu_conll_test/v9/data"
senna_path = "/home/danniel/Downloads/senna/hash"

2. Get the load data helpers

The "load_conll_2012/" directory contains libraries to read the CoNLL-2012 format of OntoNotes. They are provided by Jheng-Long Wu (jlwu@iis.sinica.edu.tw) and Canasai (https://github.com/canasai/mps).

Set the custom path to import them in ontonotes.py

sys.path.append("/home/danniel/Desktop/CONLL2012-intern")
from load_conll import load_data
from pstree import PSTree

3. Get pre-trained GloVe embeddings

Download them from the GloVe website.

Set the custom path in ontonotes.py

glove_file = "/home/danniel/Downloads/glove.840B.300d.txt"

4. Extract the alphabet, vocabulary, and embeddings

Modify and run ontonotes.py

if __name__ == "__main__":
    extract_vocabulary_and_alphabet()
    extract_glove_embeddings()
    # read_dataset()
    exit()

How to train and test

1. Train a model on OntoNotes 5.0.

python evaluate.py 2> tmp.txt

This generates model files tmp.model.*

2. Test the model on the test split of OntoNotes 5.0

python evaluate.py -m evaluate -s test 2> tmp.txt

3. Options

To see all options, run

python evaluate.py -h
