Model Framework

  • DeepKE contains a unified framework for named entity recognition, relation extraction and attribute extraction, the three knowledge extraction functions.
  • Each task can be implemented in different scenarios. For example, we can achieve relation extraction in standard, low-resource (few-shot), document-level and multimodal settings.
  • Each application scenario comprises of three components: Data including Tokenizer, Preprocessor and Loader, Model including Module, Encoder and Forwarder, Core including Training, Evaluation and Prediction.

Quick Start

DeepKE supports pip install deepke.
Take the fully supervised relation extraction for example.

Step1 Download the basic code

git clone --depth 1 https://github.com/zjunlp/DeepKE.git

Step2 Create a virtual environment using Anaconda and enter it.

conda create -n deepke python=3.8

conda activate deepke
  1. Install DeepKE with source code (Recommended)

    python setup.py install
    
    python setup.py develop
    
  2. Install DeepKE with pip

    pip install deepke
    

Step3 Enter the task directory

cd DeepKE/example/re/standard

Step4 Download the dataset, or follow the annotation instructions to obtain data

wget 120.27.214.45/Data/re/standard/data.tar.gz

tar -xzvf data.tar.gz

Many types of data formats are supported,and details are in each part.

Step5 Training (Parameters for training can be changed in the conf folder)

We support visual parameter tuning by using wandb.

python run.py

Step6 Prediction (Parameters for prediction can be changed in the conf folder)

Modify the path of the trained model in predict.yaml.The absolute path of the model needs to be usedsuch as xxx/checkpoints/2019-12-03_ 17-35-30/cnn_ epoch21.pth.

python predict.py
  • NOTE: if you encounter any errors, please refer to the Tips or submit a GitHub issue.

Introduction of Three Functions

1. Named Entity Recognition

  • Named entity recognition seeks to locate and classify named entities mentioned in unstructured text into pre-defined categories such as person names, organizations, locations, organizations, etc.

  • The data is stored in .txt files. Some instances as following (Users can label data based on the tools Doccano, MarkTool, or they can use the Weak Supervision with DeepKE to obtain data automatically):

    Sentence Person Location Organization
    94934
    ,
  • Read the detailed process in specific README

    • STANDARD (Fully Supervised)

      We provide the off-the-shelf model, DeepKE-cnSchema-NER, which will extract entities in cnSchema without training.

      Step1 Enter DeepKE/example/ner/standard. Download the dataset.

      wget 120.27.214.45/Data/ner/standard/data.tar.gz
      
      tar -xzvf data.tar.gz
      

      Step2 Training

      The dataset and parameters can be customized in the data folder and conf folder respectively.

      python run.py
      

      Step3 Prediction

      python predict.py
      
    • FEW-SHOT

      tar -xzvf data.tar.gz
      

      Step2 Training in the low-resouce setting

      The directory where the model is loaded and saved and the configuration parameters can be cusomized in the conf folder.

      python run.py +train=few_shot
      

      Users can modify load_path in conf/train/few_shot.yaml to use existing loaded model.

      Step3 Add - predict to conf/config.yaml, modify loda_path as the model path and write_path as the path where the predicted results are saved in conf/predict.yaml, and then run python predict.py

      python predict.py
      
    • MULTIMODAL

      Step1 Enter DeepKE/example/ner/multimodal. Download the dataset.

      wget 120.27.214.45/Data/ner/multimodal/data.tar.gz
      
      tar -xzvf data.tar.gz
      

      We use RCNN detected objects and visual grounding objects from original images as visual local information, where RCNN via faster_rcnn and visual grounding via onestage_grounding.

      Step2 Training in the multimodal setting

      • The dataset and parameters can be customized in the data folder and conf folder respectively.
      • Start with the model trained last time: modify load_path in conf/train.yamlas the path where the model trained last time was saved. And the path saving logs generated in training can be customized by log_dir.

Notebook Tutorial

This toolkit provides many Jupyter Notebook and Google Colab tutorials. Users can study DeepKE with them.


Tips

1.Using nearest mirror, THU in China, will speed up the installation of Anaconda; aliyun in China, will speed up pip install XXX.

2.When encountering ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'past'run pip install future .

3.It's slow to install the pretrained language models online. Recommend download pretrained models before use and save them in the pretrained folder. Read README.md in every task directory to check the specific requirement for saving pretrained models.

4.The old version of DeepKE is in the deepke-v1.0 branch. Users can change the branch to use the old version. The old version has been totally transfered to the standard relation extraction (example/re/standard).

5.It's recommended to install DeepKE with source codes. Because user may meet some problems in Windows system with 'pip',and the source code modification will not work,seeissue

6.More related low-resource knowledge extraction works can be found in Knowledge Extraction in Low-Resource Scenarios: Survey and Perspective.

7.Make sure the exact versions of requirements in requirements.txt.


To do

In next version, we plan to add event extraction to the toolkit.

Meanwhile, we will offer long-term maintenance to fix bugs, solve issues and meet new requests. So if you have any problems, please put issues to us.
