Entity Typing is an important task in text analysis. Assigning types (e.g., person, location, organization) to mentions of entities in documents enables effective structured analysis of unstructured text corpora. The extracted type information can be used in a wide range of ways (e.g., serving as primitives for information extraction and knowledge base (KB) completion, and assisting question answering). Traditional Entity Typing systems focus on a small set of coarse types (typically fewer than 10). Recent studies work on a much larger set of fine-grained types which form a tree-structured hierarchy (e.g., actor as a subtype of artist, and artist is a subtype of person).

ERNIE: Enhanced Language Representation with Informative Entities

thunlp/ERNIE ACL 2019

Neural language representation models such as BERT pre-trained on large-scale corpora can well capture rich semantic patterns from plain text, and be fine-tuned to consistently improve the performance of various NLP tasks.

Knowledge Enhanced Contextual Word Representations

allenai/kb IJCNLP 2019

Contextual word representations, typically trained on unstructured, unlabeled text, do not contain any explicit grounding to real world entities and are often unable to remember facts about those entities.

Hierarchical Losses and New Resources for Fine-grained Entity Typing and Linking

chanzuckerberg/MedMentions ACL 2018

Extraction from raw text to a knowledge base of entities and fine-grained types is often cast as prediction into a flat set of entity and type labels, neglecting the rich hierarchies over types and entities contained in curated ontologies.
