Information Extraction

SOFIE: A Self-Organizing Framework for Information Extraction

Goal:

Extract ontological information from natural language documents

diedInPlace

"Elvis died in England"

Previous approaches:

Espresso, DIPRE, LEILA, Snowball, TextRunner, Alice, and many more

ر May deliver non-canonic relations

died in, perished in, was killed in,...

ر May deliver non-canonic entities

England, UK, Great Britain, ...

ر May deliver inconsistent facts

diedInPlace(Elvis,England)

Weighted MAX SAT Problem

SOFIE: A Self-Organizing Framework for Information Extraction

Weighted MAX SAT Problem

Find truth assignments to hypotheses so that the weight of satisfied formulas is maximized

Problems:

رThe Weighted MAX SAT Problem is NP-hard

رOur instance of the problem is huge

ر The most popular linear approximation algorithm (Johnson's)

does not work well with our type of formulas

bornInPlace(X,Y) => bornInPlace(X,Z)

A v B

A v C

B v C

Johnson's cannot approximate better than 2/3

FMS Algorithm

The Functional MAX SAT Algorithm considers only unit clauses.

Formulas

Hypotheses

A v B [w1]

A v B [w2]

B v C [w3]

C [w4]

= false

A

B

C

= false

= true

The Functional MAX SAT Algorithm propagates Dominating Unit Clauses

A v B [10]

A [10]

A [30]

30 > 10+10

A = true

Approximation Guarantee

Experiments show better performance in practice than Johnson's algorithm in our setting .

Conclusion

SOFIE unifies the tasks of

رentity disambiguation

رpattern extraction

رsemantic constraint reasoning

in a single framework, delivering

رcanonicalized facts

رof high precision (experiments show 90% precision)
